The Case of the Deadly Desperados


Front cover of book has title printed on large black cowboy hatThis book has one of the best openings I have ever read! I was hooked before I turned the first page.

 

Read The Case of the Deadly Desperados, by Caroline Lawrence, and you, too, can experience the world of the American Frontier in 1862. Join twelve year old P.K. Pinkerton in his attempt to escape from truly dastardly desperados who are after a piece of paper he inherited. Find out about life in Virginia City during the heyday of the silver mines, when people from all over the world came there to find their fortune. Experience the chills and thrills with P.K., who must think like a detective if he is to survive. Enjoy the oddly formalized language used, a special treat for those who liked the book True Grit.

 

This book is the first in the Western Mysteries series.
