"The year is 1941. France has fallen into the hands of Hitler's Germany. Even the most optimistic of Americans are forced to admit that our country would soon be rushing toward armed conflict with the Nazi war machine." "When Eleanor Roosevelt is summoned to an urgent meeting in the Oval Office, she hardly expects that her husband will want her to engage in a covert mission to Nazi-occupied France! Yet this is exactly what Colonel William Donovan has suggested and the President wishes. A French/German resistance group is planning to assassinate Hitler, and they are requesting Eleanor Roosevelt's presence as a demonstration of the United States' commitment." "So Eleanor Roosevelt finds herself en route to France, joined by Vicky, a sexy Resistance agent, and Kevin O'Neil, the witty Irish mercenary who ultimately leads them to a small chateau in the French countryside. There the unlikely trio meets a variety of strange and colorful guests, including General Erwin Rommel. But the real mystery begins when SS Colonel Artur Brandt is found lying facedown in his bedroom, with a slug embedded in the back of his head!"--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
