Mrs. Sherlock Holmes
The True Story of New York City's Greatest Female Detective and the 1917 Missing Girl Case That C...
“A father's plea - "Won't you help me?" And Mrs. Grace Humiston, who started the People's Law Firm as a practicing attorney & a detective as well, would take this challenge & more. This book begins with a missing girl, and Grace's search for her uncovers connections with corruption, abuse of immigrants (Italians down south) & the legal rights for everyone. Thousands of young women disappeared in to white slavery and the police did not follow through with investigations. Grace helped organize the Missing Persons Bureau. Through the 1920-30s racial issues were still present, gangs, spies and international intrigue were a daily occurrence. And Grace was there - but who remembers her and her sacrifices? The Epilogue is full of information so be sure to read that as well. It may help you understand the greater picture.”Linda, The Bookloft
