I’ve always been a fan of Michener, and last year also discovered one of his contemporaries, reading Leon Uris’ “Exodus” during my first visit to Israel.
“Murder in the White House” and “Murder on Capitol Hill”
Murder in the White House was Truman’s first murder mystery and it made it to the New York Times best seller list as well as being optioned for a screenplay.
