In her fictional turns as a detective, as in real life, Eleanor Roosevelt has proven to be an indomitable character of courage and conviction.

As storm clouds gather over Europe and FDR receives such guests as Albert Einstein, Joe Kennedy, and crime buster Eliot Ness, Eleanor is thrust into danger much closer to home. One of the President's staff has been found dead, poisoned by cyanide mixed in his evening bourbon. Even worse, the accused killer is another White House aide, Therese Rolland.

Although the police are determined to pin the crime on Therese, Eleanor is immediately convinced she is innocent. Calmly but firmly, the First Lady uncovers a web of lies and secrets until another shocking murder is discovered. Suddenly, the investigation is taking Eleanor Roosevelt places no proper First Lady would ever go -- to the darkest underside of society, and toward a shattering truth that lies within the White House itself!

Roosevelt lived in the White House, so he knows the routines of his parents, Franklin and Eleanor. The story takes place in 1936, when a staff member is poisoned. Only one person was with him, but is she guilty? An interesting plot is filled out with authentic details of that era, such as Hitler's rise to power and White House visits by actors Bela Lugosi and Charlie Chaplin.
