Elliot Roosevelt is an American author of fiction. He is known for his writing but also for being the son of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the former President of the United States. It’s not every author that has that presidential connection!

Elliott Roosevelt was born in 1919 and passed away in 1990. He served in the U.S. Army Air forces, working to serve his country as an officer and an author. Even though he did write his books, they were later revealed to have been written as a result of the help of a ghostwriter named William Harrington. A majority of the books actually tie into his life as they feature his mother Eleanor Roosevelt, the beloved former First Lady of the United States.

The Eleanor Roosevelt series is a series of fictional novels set in the murder mystery genre. They involve murders that must be solved and are set in the White House. The series was continued up to a decade after Elliot Roosevelt’s passing and has proved quite popular amongst readers.

The debut novel in this series was called Murder and the First Lady and was released in 1984. It would be followed up with the release of The Hyde Park Murder, and more, finally concluding with Murder at the President’s Door, which was released in 2001. There are a total of twenty novels in this series, which has a fitting presidential theme and a realistic although fictionalized look into life at the White House.

Roosevelt is also the author of the Blackjack Endicott book series. It starts with the release of The President’s Man and finishes up with New Deal for Death. While many of the novels that Roosevelt wrote and published are still favorites today, those were the only two series that he composed while alive. So if you’ve read everything that he has written and still want more, you are out of luck!

Murder and the First Lady is the first book in the Eleanor Roosevelt series of fiction from Elliot Roosevelt. The series focuses on a young woman who is being employed by the First Lady herself. But when her boyfriend is brutally murdered, she is devastated by her grief. Not that her emotions matter to the authorities as she becomes the primary suspect in his murder.

Usually, when someone is murdered, the person that they are seeing or in a formal relationship with is pulled in for questioning. It is not uncommon for spouses or boyfriends or girlfriends to become the primary suspects in the murder before they are ultimately ruled out or their alibies can be vouched for.

The girlfriend knows that she didn’t do it, but what does the President’s wife think about the matter? Pamela is desperate to have someone believe her, and it’s a good thing that the First Lady trusts her because she believes that the young woman is innocent. When you are the First Lady of the nation, you luckily have quite a bit of sway on your side.

Eleanor sets out to prove to the officials that the young woman did not kill her lover. She works with the officials to try and do this, but it’s not going to be easy. The murdered boyfriend had significant connections and his family is none too happy that he has been killed. They are going on the warpath and will barely listen to reason at all. Pamela and Eleanor definitely have their work cut out for them.

The son of a Congressman, the deceased young man is the victim of some killer that is presumably running around out there on the loose. Can the First Lady deal with the wrath of well-connected politicians and keep it from wrecking the only window that she and Pamela have to prove her innocence? She will try, even if the family doesn’t’ want her to be involved.

The further that the First Lady delves into the case, the more that she begins to unearth. The Congressman doesn’t like that the wife of the President is getting involved. When her digging reveals a few details about the deceased’s personal life and his hobbies, the stakes have never been higher. You won’t know what to expect in this fast-paced, exciting debut novel in the Eleanor Roosevelt series. With plenty of action, characters, murder, mystery, and surprises, you’ll be hooked on this fun fiction series from Roosevelt.

The Hyde Park Murder is the intriguing second novel by distinguished murder mystery author Elliot Roosevelt. This book deals with Alfred Doolittle Hannah, a resident of the quiet Hyde Park area. But things are not all good for Mr. Hannah as he is formally accused of orchestrating a swindle of stocks to the tune of several million dollars.

The President is troubled at the prospect, but his wife is determined to do what she can to look into this case. She’s not going to let a resident of Hyde Park be accused of something that they did not do. Could there be other forces involved? The First Lady has decided to do what she can to help out and try and create a good result. It does, after all, threaten the upcoming nuptials and happiness of their beautiful neighbor Adriana van der Meer in Hyde Park.

Adriana is nineteen years old and engaged to be married, and Eleanor will do what she can to preserve the sanctity of that day. But the efforts of the First Lady must be falling short because Mr. Hannah is killed in what appears to be a suicide. But Eleanor thinks differently, and that his passing was in fact murder of the first degree.

The smartest First Lady in history is on a mission to help a young girl that wants to marry the man she is in love with. Everyone would be happy if it could be proved that the father of this young man had been framed and the authorities had arrested the wrong man. But the suicide or suspected murder shocks everyone. As more people get involved, Eleanor is desperate to catch a killer and prove a murder– but can it be done? Pick up The Hyde Park Murder to find out!

    I’m looking for Elliott Roosevelt’s book entitled “As He saw it”. Do you have this book? Published Duell, Sloan & Pearce, N.Y. The book reports on his Father’s wartime conversations of which Elliott was an ear-witness. It would appear to be a historically valuable document; hence my interest.
