Overview

“Clever, and very funny.”–The New York Times

The year is 1862, and twelve-year-old P.K. “Pinky” Pinkerton is on the run from 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. P.K. 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.

Praise

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

 

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