Editorial Reviews


Praise for The Body in the Ballroom:
"Koreto’s second Alice Roosevelt mystery manages to be accessible while conveying an authentic period feel. The two investigators are delightful, and the historical figures sprinkled throughout the tale never overwhelm the plot.”
Kirkus Reviews

“A series that began with the incredible, Alice and the Assassin continues with this great tale that is the perfect combination of history and suspense. This is one new “star” that readers hope will continue to solve crimes and influence people for many books to come.”
Suspense Magazine

Praise for Alice and the Assassin:
Alice and the Assassin is a great debut in a new series for fans of historical mystery. I loved spending time with feisty Alice Roosevelt in her role as a sleuth, and in the company of her sharp young Secret Service Agent, Mr. St. Clair. It’s a delightful read and left me wanting more.”
—Linda Fairstein, NYT bestselling author of the Alexandra Cooper mysteries

"R.J. Koreto gives us a fascinating glimpse into the lives of the Roosevelts in this intriguing whodunit. Alice is a feisty, independent woman of her time, and her bodyguard, Mr. St. Clair, is a perfect foil with his calm demeanor and dry humor. Smooth writing and an eye for detail adds to this captivating mystery."
—Kate Kingsbury, national bestselling author of the Pennyfoot Hotel mysteries

“The premise and the depictions of the turn-of-the-century Manhattan melting pot shine, heralding a promising series.”
Publishers Weekly

“The first daughter’s lively personality, her chemistry with her Secret Service agent, and Koreto’s...detailed knowledge of turn-of-the century New York City make for an entertaining series debut.”
Kirkus Reviews

“This is a fun start to a new series, with characters that will leave readers hungry for more. Alice Roosevelt...is endearing in her own feisty, irreverent way. Joseph St. Clair...makes an entertaining and sexy cowboy counterpart. Their back-and-forth banter is smartly hilarious and...their investigative skills are well-plotted and well-paced.”
RT Book Reviews

“A delightful book...The fictionalized Alice is an entertaining creation and one of whom the actual Alice probably would’ve approved.”
NY Journal of Books

"This is a really fun ride ...this is the very first title in what looks to be an incredible new series."
Suspense Magazine

“A gripping look at Manhattan, politics, and big business at the turn of the century...[An] entertaining mystery.”
Reviewing the Evidence
