Mrs. Sherlock Holmes: The True Story of New York City's Greatest Female Detective and the 1917 Missing Girl Case That C...

Unabridged Audiobook

Duration: 12 hours 37 minutes

Summary:

Mrs. Grace Humiston was an amazing lawyer and a traveling detective during a time when no women were practicing those professions. She focused on solving cases no one else wanted and advocating for innocents. The first female U.S. District Attorney, she made groundbreaking investigations into modern-day slavery, and the papers gave her the nickname of fiction's famous sleuth. One of her greatest accomplishments was solving the cold case of a missing eighteen-year-old girl, Ruth Cruger. Her work changed how the country viewed the problem of missing girls, but it came with a price: she learned all too well what happens when one woman upstages the entire NYPD. In the literary tradition of In Cold Blood and The Devil in the White City, this true-crime tale is told in spine-tingling fashion and has important repercussions concerning kidnapping, the role of the media, and the truth of crime stories. But the great mystery of this book-and its haunting twist ending-is how one woman became so famous only to disappear

    This book had so much potential! What a great story -- but told in such an awkward fashion.... Lots of interesting little vignettes that were never really tied together in a coherent fashion. Best attempt at that came at the very end of the epilogue after wading through pages of mundane details about dates and causes of death of multiple secondary characters then finally a piece about Grace herself and what her work meant to girls and women everywhere. I so wanted to love this book but found myself largely frustrated by it...
