Overview

The First Lady was smiling for the cameras.

But the Shirley Temple look-alike contest was the furthest thing from Eleanor's mind...

Her duties range from the ridiculous to the sublime. But her keen mind is honed in on one matter. After a state visit from the King and Queen of England, the body of a young woman, a seemingly innocent White House employee, is discovered on the third floor of the Executive Mansion. Quickly realizing that the girl has been killed somewhere else-and that she was far from innocent-Eleanor dons the disguise of Washington, D.C. Homicide Detective "Broderick" and enters a world of speakeasies, mobsters, and the tangled sexual liaisons of restless young men and women. With the dark spectre of war in Europe looming, and such luminaries as Babe Ruth and Ernest Hemingway making pilgrimages to FDR, Eleanor is running out of time-to stop a killer who can do more harm than murder.
