Virginia City in 1862 is a mining camp sitting above a rich vein of silver in America's Wild West. It's a dangerous place, full of gamblers, hurdy girls and gunmen - all of them on the make!

When twelve year-old P.K. Pinkerton arrives there, homeless, penniless and hunted, things don't look good. But P.K. soon finds allies in Sam Clemens, a newspaper reporter, Poker Face Jace, a gambler who can tell when someone is bluffing, and Ping, a Chinese photographer's apprentice.

With the help of these friends- and armed with a Smith & Wesson seven-shooter and a knack for disguises - P.K. takes on the tricksters and desperados and tries to become a detective.

    " Cute middle grade western mystery. My full review here "

    " Terrific read for high 4th grade through low 8th. Non-stop action in the Old West is a sure bet for reluctant readers, particularly boys. "

    " It was great. Just my type of realistic fiction. Anyone will like it. I't was seriously awesome "

    " Super fun romp that keeps you guessing until the end. This would make a great read aloud because it's action packed, but also has a lot to talk about - past (and present) American Indian stereotypes, opium dens (truly!) and "soiled doves" who spark men. Also, lots of murder and gun play - it's the wild west, after all. I'll thoughtfully recommend this to older tweens. "
