During a time when women were still not allowed to vote, Grace Humiston turned her back on New York society life to become a lawyer, detective, and first woman U.S. District Attorney—not to mention one of the nation's greatest crime-fighters. After agreeing to take the sensational case of missing 18-year-old Ruth Cruger, Grace and her partner, the hard-boiled detective Julius J. Kron, navigated a dangerous web of secret boyfriends, two-faced cops, underground tunnels, rumors of white slavery, and a mysterious pale man, in a desperate race against time. A 2018 Edgar Award nominee, Brad Ricca's biography is "a spellbinding true crime history that reads like a novel" (Library Journal).
