Hardback. 1st UK edn. The story of Allan Pinkerton who went to the USA from Scotland to avoid arrest, became an internationally famous private detective and founded the world's oldest and largest investigative agency. His capture of jewel thieves, bank robbers and swindlers filled the papers of the day. A man of extraordinary powers of observation and courage, he prevented an assassination attempt on Abraham Lincoln; organised the first official Secret Service for duty behind Confederate lines during the Civil War and rode with lawmen along the Old Frontier, hunting down members of Jesse James' gang, the Reno brothers and other desperadoes. To this day Pinkerton's National Detective Agency still hounds lawbreakers in the colourful tradition of its founder - America's first private detective. Illus. + Index. 241pp. 8vo h/back.
