Nominated for the 2018 Edgar Award for best fact-based crime story, this is the true story of Grace Humiston, whom the press nicknamed "Mrs. Sherlock Holmes." In a time when women couldn't vote, Humiston was a lawyer, a detective, and the first female U.S. district attorney. David Bendena's intense narration makes us believe in her. He highlights the February 1917 disappearance of 18-year-old Ruth Cruger, last seen taking her ice skates to be sharpened at a Harlem shop. After the NYPD had given up, Humiston and her detective partner agree to take the case. With a no-nonsense attitude, Bendena portrays Humiston's honesty and doggedness. He gives each character credible voices. As the two detectives scramble to locate the missing woman, Bendena heightens the drama. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2018]
