The Body in the Ballroom: An Alice Roosevelt Mystery

FICTION


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.

ACTIVITY FROM AROUND THE WEB
Teddy Roosevelt’s daughter uses guile and grit to clear an innocent man accused of murder.

While Alice Roosevelt is in New York, she’s in the charge of Secret Service agent Joseph St. Clair, who narrates in a peppy, slightly formal first person. Their history as sleuthing partners has some precedent (Alice and the Assassin, 2017), so St. Clair isn’t surprised when Alice steps forward to investigate the death of Lynley Brackton, who fell sick and died after drinking the punch at a coming-out ...

Koreto’s second Alice Roosevelt mystery manages to be accessible while conveying an authentic period feel. The two investigators are delightful, and the historical figures sprinkled throughout the tale never overwhelm the plot.
