Book: Murder in the Chateau

I really enjoy books about the second world war, whether they are histories or fiction set in the war. Elliott Roosevelt writes a series of books about his mother, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Murder in the Chateau is a good example of the style of this series. In this case, Eleanor Roosevelt finds herself in Vichy France, and as one might expect, there is a murder that she needs to solve.

I think this particular volume takes more liberties with the historical possibilities than usual. You will need to suspend disbelief to a pretty serious extend in regard to the capabilities of the Gestapo, the SS, and even the Vichy Milice. But the story is interesting, and the characters are engaging as usual.

I rate this at 3 of 5.
