Description
It's the spring of 1939, and as the world braces for war a young Jack Kennedy travels to Europe on a secret mission for Franklin Roosevelt in this deft mosaic of fact and fiction—a gripping and sexy read by a former CIA analyst and the author of The Alibi Club. FDR hopes to stop the flow of German money that has been flooding into the United States, as Hitler tries to buy the 1940 election and see Roosevelt out of office. And though Jack, the attractive but unpromising second son of Joseph Kennedy, Roosevelt's ambassador to Britain, may seem an unlikely choice, Jack has decided to travel through Europe to research his Harvard senior thesis, and FDR takes the opportunity to use him to get the goods on the Nazis.

"The pace is so propulsive that you'll read every word.... Mathews's ability to weave fact into her tale is nothing short of remarkable ... there are precious few entertainments this captivating."—Washington Post
