Author Brad Ricca visited us earlier this October as part of our Mentor Mystery Month. He shared with us to the incredible story of Mrs. Grace Humiston, the detective and lawyer who turned her back on New York society life to become one of the nation’s greatest crime fighters.

Humiston was the subject of Ricca’s book, “Mrs. Sherlock Holmes : the true story of New York’s City’s greatest female detective and the 1917 missing girl case that captivated a nation.”

After his talk, we interviewed Ricca and he:

  • discussed his conflicted relationship with the true-crime genre
  • offered his theory for why so much comics talent comes from Cleveland
  • told us his favorite X-Man characters
  • and shared how comics legend Harvey Pekar changed his life.
