Reviews

"Olive the Lionheart has it all - secret chambers, lost love, and the dwelling place of a devil. Ricca mines emotions and real fears in this incredible true story." -Brad Meltzer, bestselling author of The First Conspiracy: The Secret Plot to Kill George Washington

Brad Ricca's Olive MacLeod is my favorite sort of woman from history--bold and unconventional, utterly unsinkable--and her story is so full of adventure and acts of courage, it's hard to believe she actually lived. And yet she did! Brad Ricca has found a heroine for the ages, and written her tale with a winning combination of accuracy and imagination. --Paula McLain, author of Love and Ruin and The Paris Wife

[Humiston's] story demands a hearing.... Brad Ricca makes a heroic case for Humiston, a lawyer and United States district attorney who forged a career of defending powerless women and immigrants. --New York Times Book Review on Mrs. Sherlock Holmes
