Über diesen Titel
Judge Horace Blackwell is found stabbed to death in his room at the Executive Mansion, and Sara Carter, a black maid, is summarily arrested. Faced with the steamy facts of Blackwell's private life--his mob connections and the related death of a speakeasy bouncer--Eleanor finds suspects and motives aplenty. It takes sharp wits and common sense to solve a crime while serving tea to the ladies of the "crusade for decency", but can Eleanor save Sara from the electric chair--and save Washington from a cunning killer?From Kirkus Reviews:
Another of Roosevelt's posthumous stories (Murder in the Chateau, 1996, etc.)--this one set in the early days of FDR's first term, when a so-called Brain Trust was helping the President's efforts to solve the country's crucial problems. One of that esteemed group is Judge Horace Blackwell from New York. He has been a guest in a second-floor bedroom of the White House for several weeks when he's found, late one night, stabbed to death. Sara Carter, the young black maid who discovers the body, is promptly arrested by Secret Service agent Lawrence Pickering, despite the protestations of Eleanor Roosevelt, who declares herself an unofficial member of the investigating team. Blackwell, it soon appears, was a charismatic, sadistic rou‚, with a string of high- and low-placed sex partners. He also had some bitter enemies among the big-time mobsters back in New York. A couple of mob henchmen have now surfaced in Washington, for what purpose Pickering can't fathom, until the night Achille ``Chickie'' Pepino is found shot to death in a White House corridor. Confusion reigns until Eleanor gets the help of an expert to verify her suspicion of the killer's identity and proves to be right on target. All of this plays out side by side with glimpses of world and national events and the ongoing business of the presidency, lending piquancy and historical interest to a well-honed plot. One of the best in the series. -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
