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.
Abroad there is war-at home there is murder...

Now the First Lady must map out a sinister killer with a twisted political agenda...
