Filled with outlaws and criminals, detectives and lawmen, Pinkerton' s Great Detective shines a light upon the celebrated secretive agency and its premier sleuth.

The story was interesting and honest, fair, and laced with as much detail as could be offered about a relatively scantly-historied character. I longed for more tidbits of historical context because I enjoyed what was presented. Sometimes I felt it needed a little narrative connectedness to drive it along, but I'm new to biographies, so that might be just the nature of the beast. The reading sounded strangely robotic--it was clear and normally inflected, but there was a strange mechanical undertone that sometimes grated, possibly a result of the recording. Overall a solid read, though.
