Kelly Durham, author of eight thrillers set against the backdrops of World War II and the Golden Age of Hollywood, and Kathryn Smith, author of Missy LeHand’s biography THE GATEKEEPER, deliver again in the third Missy LeHand Mystery.

Can The First Lady Save An Innocent Woman’s Life?

Eleanor Roosevelt was a tremendous advocate for victims of misjustice, but she may have met her match in Jim Crow Georgia.  A black woman sits on death row awaiting her date with the electric chair for a crime she didn’t commit. Even with the help of the President’s secretary, Marguerite LeHand, and FBI agent Corey Wainwright, the First Lady battles racial prejudice and the ticking of the executioner’s clock. Devious Hollywood reporter Joan Roswell — fresh from an interview with Margaret Mitchell — and glamorous starlet Ida Lupino round out the cast in this fast-paced story, set in Warm Springs, Georgia, home of FDR’s beloved Little White House.
