A must read for all mystery lovers of non-violent, humorous, easy going crime (if there can be such a thing!) Elliot was FDR's son and he certainly found his niche writing mystery novels. Love the way they contain real people in every book. So far I've encountered Errol Flynn, Humphrey Bogart, Joan Crawford, Lindbergh and Winston Churchill. But best of all is his mother, Eleanor, who is the amateur sleuth who helps solve each murder - all of which take place in a different room of the White House in each subsequent book. These are wonderful and wildly entertaining. I've bought every book he wrote and will be very sad when I've reached the end.

This is an Elliott Roosevelt mystery using his mother Eleanor as the amateur sleuth. Once again someone is murdered in the White House and Mrs. Roosevelt must figure out who done it.
There’s plenty of political gossip. For instance the president and Missy Lehand discuss Edward VII’s romance with Wallis Simpson. The first lady meets with performers Charlie Chaplin and Bela Lugosi as well as Walter Reuther, the labor leader and J. Edgar Hoover. The president and the first lady both have lunch with Albert Einstein. There’s an interesting sequence where the president introduces comic strip creators. Thus we get a good blend of history and fiction. The how done it in this case is interesting, and it would clearly take someone of Eleanor Roosevelt’s intelligence to figure out. If you like history, politics and mystery stories, this might be a book for you.

Eleanor Roosevelt was an activist First Lady who championed the downtrodden. In a series of fictional mysteries, her son, Elliott, has her also be a master detective. Here, the year is 1936, and America is still in the grip of the Great Depression. But in Washington, a complex web of blackmail has been in operation, resulting in the murder of a member of President Roosevelt's staff. The police accuse a White House aide, but Mrs. Roosevelt quickly concludes that she is not the murderer. To find the real murderer, she must dig through a morass of secrets and lies involving a corrupt, political machine in Louisiana. As she nears the truth, another murder shocks the White House, and it takes all of her insight to untangle this complex web. The story has the same deliberate pace as previous mysteries in this series, flavored with an inside look at the White House in that long-ago time. Don't expect a frantic thriller, but it's thoroughly enjoyable to see if you can solve the mystery before Mrs. Roosevelt does.
