Written by the son of Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt He keeps your interest up.
Another murder mystery set in DC with the first lady acting as sleuth, but with allusions to several prominent Americans' sexual infidelities! adultery plays center stage in this story of contract killing.
My impression of this book is 'just OK' It is a fairly quick read.
A delightful combination of history and mystery, the Eleanor Roosevelt novels bring readers back in time, as our most beloved First Lady scours the nation's capital for clues, while crossing paths with many of her famous contemporaries.
When Sargent Peavy, a member of the Federal Treasury Board, is found shot to death in his Georgetown home, suspicion is immediately cast upon Jessica Dee, his beautiful Polish lover. But Eleanor, who considers the young woman both a dear friend and an invaluable ally to FDR, is convinced of Jessica's innocence. Combing the Capital City to find the real killer, Eleanor must balance the many obligations of First-Lady-ship (such as entertaining the Marx Brothers and W. C. Fields) with the demands of her private investigating. And as she sifts through the suspects...from jealous wives and lovers to high-level bankers to the Irish mob...Eleanor is thrown headlong into a dangerous stew of intrigue, deceit and cold-blooded greed...
