The Case of the Deadly Desperados by Caroline Lawrence

Type of story: Adventure

Tell us about it:
If you like good adventure stories, then you won't want to miss The Case of the Deadly Desperados. The main character and hero within the book is 12 year old P.K. Pinkerton. P.K. becomes a Private Detective, and with clever detecting skills - eyes as sharp as a hawk, ears as keen as a rabbit, and sense of smell almost as good as a bear - is a natural for the job. The Case of the Deadly Desperados is set in America in the 1860's in the largely lawless Virginia City. Every second building seems to be a saloon bar where men gamble and drink. Fights break out constantly. Non-stop action and twists and turns are contained on nearly every page as P.K strives to bring criminals to justice.

Recommended holiday reading with a Western theme.

How good was it? Fantastic
