Nine gender-swapped retellings of classic stories

At Bustle, Sadie Trombetta tagged nine gender-swapped retellings of classic books, including:
A Study in Honor by Claire O'Dell

In the first of two gender-swapped Holmes retellings on this list, author Claire O'Dell recasts the famous detective and his trusted partner as two queer black women living in a near-future Washington, D.C. Together, and with the help of espionage, advance technology, and good old fashioned deduction, the covert agent and the talented doctor work together to uncover who is behind the murders targeting Civil War veterans. Sharp, exciting, and unapologetically feminist, A Study in Honor is a Sherlock story like you've never seen before.
