Millett, Larry  
Strongwood: A Crime Dossier
Signed by the author on the title page. Based on an actual case. Minneapolis, 1903: Michael Masterton claims he's in love with Addie Strongwood, a working-class girl with an interesting past and a mind of her own. Then their relationship begins to disintegrate, until, amid allegations of seduction, rape, and blackmail, Michael is shot dead and Addie goes on trial for first-degree murder. But was it really self-defense? Sherlock Holmes and Shadwell Rafferty play crucial roles in the unraveling of the case.
