Alice and the Assassin by R.J. Koreto. Published by Crooked Lane

Secret Service Agent Jospeh St. Clair is not happy with his new assignment. It’s 1902 and S. Clair’s job is to watch over Alice Roosevelt, daughter of newly sworn in President Theodore Roosevelt. This job is beneath the agent, a former Rough Rider, who balks at the thought of baby sitting a young woman he considers a spoiled brat. Alice may be used to getting her way, and she may be a little wild, but she’s also deady serious about investigating the murder of former president William McKinley. Alice isn’t satisfied with the explanations she’s heard about McKinley’s murder and she’s tremendously concerned about her father’s safety. For her, it seems only natural that she will track down the answers herself, even if that means visiting some of the worst dives, bars and alleyways in the city, and that means St. Clair will have to be right at her side. I really enjoyed this historical mystery, While Koreto may have taken some liberties with Alice’s detective work, it’s obvious the novel required meticulous historical research
