President Teddy Roosevelt’s daring daughter, Alice, leaps
into action to exonerate a friend accused of poisoning a man
just about everyone hated.
Alice Roosevelt, the
brilliant, danger-loving daughter of President Theodore
Roosevelt, has already risked an assassin’s bullet to solve
one murder. She never expected to have to sleuth another,
but she’d never pass up the opportunity, either. Anything to
stave off boredom.
And such an opportunity presents
itself when Alice is invited to a lavish ball. The
high-society guests are in high spirits as they imbibe the
finest wines. But one man, detested by nearly all the
partygoers, quaffs a decidedly deadlier cocktail. An
African-American mechanic, who also happens to be a good
friend of former Rough Rider-turned-Secret Service Agent
Joseph St. Clair, is suspected of the murder-by-poison, but
Alice is sure he’s innocent and is back on the scene to
clear his name.
From downtown betting parlors to
uptown mansions, Alice and Agent St. Clair uncover forbidden
romances and a financial deal that just might change the
world. But neither Alice nor her would-be protector may
survive the case at hand in The Body in the Ballroom,
R. J. Koreto's gripping second Alice Roosevelt mystery.
