The Hyde Park Murder

The Hyde Park Murder (Eleanor Roosevelt, #2)The Hyde Park Murder by Elliott Roosevelt
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Eleanor Roosevelt helps a young girl whose parents want her to stop seeing the young man she intends to marry because his father has been arrested for financial scandal involving investments. She wants to prove that the young man has been framed. Unfortunately, the young man's father appears to have committed suicide, but Bob is sure that he has been murdered. As the plot develops other actual people like the newly appointed SEC Commissioner, Joe Kennedy become involved.

The plot has many twists and turns, but moves at a pretty fast pace and the history of the era is very interesting. It is a nice way to get a little history lesson with a pretty engaging mystery.
