Book: Murder on the Campaign Train, A Missy LeHand Mystery
Synopsis: Journalist and writer with a long fascination with Franklin Delano Roosevelt, his circle and his times, Kathryn Smith's abiding interest in FDR led to her decision to write "The Gatekeeper," the first and only biography of Marguerite LeHand, FDR's private secretary, confidant, advisor and friend. Kathryn frequently speaks about Missy, often in character and in period costume. Kathryn's partnership with Kelly Durham, a high school classmate from the 70s in Anderson, SC, stems from her proof-reading his inventive and fact-based World War II thrillers and Old Hollywood novels. Mutual admiration led to their collaboration on the first Missy LeHand Mystery novel, "Shirley Temple Is Missing." The second, "The President's Birthday Ball Affair," was quickly followed by "Eleanor Roosevelt Goes to Prison, then "FDR’s Convention Conspiracy." And now, in an election year, we have "Murder on the Campaign Train"! When a passenger on President Roosevelt's campaign train is found dead, there is no shortage of suspects. He has offended almost everyone on board, and some of those who knew him before the train left the station in Washington had private grudges as well. Even Missy LeHand, the president's loyal secretary, is a suspect, along with Hollywood reporter Joan Roswell, who has finagled a last-minute berth on the train. Add in financier Joseph P. Kennedy, actor Edward G. Robinson, and a host of reporters, aides, and hangers-on, and the investigating state police captain, assisted by the FBI's Corey Wainwright, have their hands full. If you love a good story set on a train, you'll love this caper with its tips of the hat to "Murder on the Orient Express," "From Russia with Love," "North by Northwest," and even "Silver Streak."
