During the investigation several suspects emerge including a young naval officer, a popular radio broadcaster and even Mr. Rockefeller. Then a second young lady with ties to all the suspects is murdered.
In between looking for clues and interviewing suspects, Mrs. Roosevelt welcomes movie stars as she makes a film for WWII Savings Bond sales.
