Allan Pinkerton is famous as the founder of the detective agency that still bears his name - what is less well known is that he was also a prolific author. This book is a collection of his writing, including accounts of how he foiled an attempt on the life of Abraham Lincoln, and his infiltration of the Molly Maguires gang.
