She splits her time now between New York City and Atlanta, where she hit her hot streak as a Fulton County prosecutor (almost 100 felony cases, no losses at trial), then wound up as the late Johnny Cochran’s sidekick on “Cochran and Grace,” a legal show with a brief run.
But Nancy Grace had legs, and kept running to make her own TV history: from Court TV anchor to CNN Headline News superstar with a loyal 700,000 nightly fan base of true crime afficionados, to author and now gifted novelist.
Recent book signings for her first novel and New York Times bestseller, “The Eleventh Victim,” (Hyperion, $25.99) strongly autobiographical, stretched out the door of an Atlanta book store the other day, as she posed and signed autographs for friends, fans, and locals who thanked her for once keeping their city safe.
