Series:

P.K. Pinkerton

Biographical note:

Caroline Lawrence grew up in Bakersfield, California, and claims that some of her ancestors were pioneers, teamsters and newspapermen. Caroline moved to England to study classics at Cambridge. After a decade of immersing herself in Roman history to write the Roman Mysteries series, Caroline is now mining the rich vein of American history during the tumultuous 1860s. She currently lives in London by the river with her history-loving husband, Richard, who did the illustrations for this book.

Main description:

"Clever, and very funny."--The New York Times

The year is 1862, and twelve-year-old P.K. “Pinky” Pinkerton is on the run for Whittlin’ Walt and his gang of ruthless desperados. P.K. is determined to hold on to Ma’s last priceless possession: the deed to a large amount of land and silver mines in the Nevada Mountains. Problem is, that’s exactly what Whittlin’ Walt is after, and he’ll do just about anything to get his hands on it. Pinky will have to be both clever and cunning to evade the band of outlaws. But time is running out, and no one can run forever. After all, this is the Wild West, and there’s hardly a safe place to hide.

Review quote:

"A winning blend of Wild West and classic detective lore, this first book in the Western Mysteries series is a fast-paced, engrossing read, from beginning to end."--Booklist, starred review

 

Review quote:

“ …this agile story should keep readers’ attention from first page to last.”--Publishers Weekly

Review quote:

“I’m sure my action-loving 9-year-old, as well as my autistic 12-year-old, will love this buoyant story as it hurtles to a thrilling conclusion while being both moving and morally unsentimental. If, as P.K.’s foster mother puts it, ‘a Detective is someone who uncovers the Truth & brings Justice’ then Lawrence…is being the kind of detective all good authors can be."--New York Times Book Review

Review quote:

"A rich vein of wisdom runs through this highly entertaining, swashbuckling series debut.”—Kirkus, starred review
