An Excellent addition to the Eleanor Roosevelt Mystery Series. This is Book 12 in the series, the year is 1940 and President Roosevelt in pondering a third term in the White House. At a State Dinner Senator Vance Gibson becomes ill and leaves the ballroom only to be found dead in the East Room minutes later, his throat slit.

While the President deals with the escalating war in Europe and a possible third term, the First Lady continues to hone her sleuthing skills to discover who murder the handsome philanderer.

An exciting mystery that kept me wondering whodunit up until the very end.

In 1940 the world was hurtling toward war, and in Washington, DC, the First Lady was hunting for a killer. Fine food and drink were not a hallmark of FDR's White House, but bad champagne isn't the reason Senator Vance Gibson staggered away from a state dinner. Moments after his departure the man is found dead in the East Room, his throat slit from ear to ear!

Eleanor Roosevelt can't help but investigate the murder of Senator Gibson, a man who was irresistible to women, including Greta Garbo herself. Eamining the suspects, from jealous husband to a corrupt politician, Eleanor finds herself in a steamy world of sex and secrets. But the President's wife, the most shocking truth is yet to come.

This series is great, consider it time travel, alternate history, whatever, it makes a good read.
