Summary :

Written about Alice Roosevelt Longworth, daughter of Teddy Roosevelt and cousin of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. This is interesting in that "First Lady Murders" implies a murder mystery, but I didn't find any murder in this story. There was espionage, however. Alice tries to catch a spy; there was no spy caught, but one suspected. Leave it to CND to do things different from everyone else. Still, it is well written and humorous about a woman who doesn't really care about standards society sets for her or in being a "lady". Self willed, I guess you'd call her, smoking, playing poker, and dressing in trousers. I enjoyed the story.
