‘Is the President afraid to admit he can’t walk?’

When Presidential Secretary Missy LeHand receives a bombshell photo and attached note in the mail revealing the full nature of FDR’s disability, she knows trouble is brewing. And then another picture with the same message arrives, and another. With the Democratic National Convention just days away, President Roosevelt calls in FBI Special Agent Corey Wainwright to help with the investigation.

Meanwhile, Hollywood reporter Joan Roswell has a new boss, a charismatic media mogul who sends her to Washington to procure an interview with the President about the exact nature of his disability. Are the two related? And what’s the end game here? Kelly and Kathryn deliver again – with a little help from Bette Davis – in this history-spiced mystery
