Mrs. Sherlock Holmes by Brad Ricca.

This is the extraordinary story of one woman who trailblazed her way through a society that had no female lawyers or detectives by solving famous cold cases and scores of ongoing cases that no one else would touch.  Mrs. Grace Humiston became the first female U.S. District Attorney and was so successful that it changed the way crimes against women were investigated and earned her the nickname Mrs. Sherlock Holmes.  This suspenseful and inspiring true crime tale poses the question: how did one of history’s most groundbreaking women go from famous to nearly forgotten?
