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 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.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 12, 2011 – Lawrence s energetic, vividly written series opener begins with 12-year-old P.K. Pinkerton trapped in a mine shaft, facing certain death and recording the wild adventure that led him there. In 1862 the twice-orphaned, half-Sioux P.K. hops a stagecoach from his tiny home in the Nevada Territory for the rowdy streets of Virginia City, fleeing from the much-feared outlaw Whittlin Walt, who just scalped and murdered P.K. s second set of parents. The outlaws are after a silver mine deed, left to P.K. and worth millions. P.K., who is wily but has almost no emotional intelligence, slowly comes to understand that he can trust no one; he adopts various disguises and picks up some street smarts from a slew of equally lively characters, including substantial cameos from Samuel Clemens and others. Lawrence (the Roman Mysteries series) easily captures the chaos and tension of the Wild West, complete with gamblers, Soiled Doves, and plenty of slang (defined in a glossary) and gunfire. With cliffhangers ending most of the chapters, this agile story should keep readers attention from first page to last. Ages 8 12.

Customer Reviews

Great Book!

I have not read this book on the iPad, but I have read it in hardback. It is a great book! The Case of the Deadly Desperados is hard to put down because there is suspense at every turn. Characters and things are not who or what they seem, and the reader never knows what to expect. I have read most of this author's books, and this one does not disappoint!
