The Lufton Lady reveals an episode from the early career of Sherlock Holmes — an incident that proves the great detective had a heart as well as a brain. The story is told mostly in excerpts from the journal of an aristocrat who finds himself caught up in a dramatic encounter in 1878. The Lufton Lady is a novella by Marlene R. Aig, a noted Sherlockian and member of the Adventuresses of Sherlock Holmes who was also a respected Associated Press reporter. It has been largely unknown since her death in 1996, and is now published for the first time.
