    " Very enjoyable read. Still trying to figure out if it is appropriate for a 4th grade classroom library. The narrator, PK Pinkerton is a uniques voice and I loved the plot twists and characters. So much of this story was wonderful, but some overly violent scenes and references to sex make me just a little nervous about 'endorsing' it to 9-year-olds. "

    " An ripsnorting romp from beginning to end! P.K. is a terrific character who is easy to care about. I can't wait for more "cases." "

    " A rip roaring adventure with a young boy "Pinky" who tries to stay alive while 3 desperadoes who killed his parents, chase after him trying to get their hands on potential riches. Clverly written, great characters from the old West. "

    " If you ever watched Deadwood and thought, "It's good, but I wish it were funnier. And that the hero was a twelve-year old, half-Native kid with Asperger's tendencies." then this is pretty much the perfect book for you. And I mean that in the best possible way, because I do love myself some Deadwood. And this? I enjoyed it ever so much. Like, actually glad it's going to be a series because I want more adventures with this crew, so much and I say things like that very rarely. Just really fun (but also informative!) and a quick pace and actual, legitimate adventure. "
