Murder in the Red Room
[an Eleanor Roosevelt Mystery]Large Print - 2000
Amidst these historic events, a murder poses this country's greatest threat, and presents Eleanor Roosevelt with what may be her most challenging case. In her tenth investigative outing since her son Elliott began featuring her as the star of his acclaimed mystery series, the First Lady's efforts are sparked by a strange note delivered to her during a White House dinner.
"Do not allow any guest to enter the Red Room", the note reads, signed by a Secret Service agent. Naturally, Eleanor cannot let the mysterious command go unnoticed and slips away to discover the body of a notorious Cleveland mobster, fatally stabbed. How he got into the White House, and who made sure he would never leave, make for a richly entertaining whodunit mastered and solved First Lady of Mystery.
