Pormenores da obra
Murder in the West Wing por Elliott Roosevelt
"In her fictional turns as a detective, as in real life, Eleanor Roosevelt has proven to be an indomitable character of courage and conviction. In this, her eleventh appearance as star of son Elliott's mystery series, Eleanor returns to protect the innocent and unmask the guilty." "She has her work cut out for her, in what seems to be an open-and-shut case. Paul Duroc, special assistant to the President, dies after drinking a bourbon and water laced with cyanide - a drink he took in his closed office, in the company only of Therese Rolland, who drank from the same bottle but was not poisoned. Her survival is made all the more suspicious by her unseemly hurry to rinse out the glasses, and her fate appears sealed." "But Eleanor is not convinced of the woman's guilt, and the First Lady's suspicions lead her into Washington's seamy underside, from houses of prostitution to dealers in narcotics to the disintegrating organization of the recently assassinated Huey Long. En route to solving the crime, Eleanor maintains her usual busy schedule - flying in the first DC-3 to visit West Virginia miners, playing White House hostess, and helping the President plan his 1936 reelection campaign."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
