I like these detective books by Pinkerton! This is the second that I've read.

Another engrossing case presented by legendary detective Allan Pinkerton. This one deals with the murder of an elderly German expatriate.

Interesting book, rather clearly written to publicize the success of a Pinkerton detective in a case of murder, and definitely written in a style that matches the late 19th or early 20th century. Not a great work, but a good example of many of the works of the era.

The original "True Crime" story, Allan Pinkerton wrote of one of his cases making it sound like a novel. Interesting case; interesting read.
