After dispatching three deadly desperadoes in The Case of the Deadly Desperados, 12-year-old detective P.K. Pinkerton is again on the trail of the next villain to come to the hot-blooded Wild West town of Virginia.

Young Martha, a maid in a house of Soiled Doves, witnesses a murder and hires P.K. to find the killer. Enlisting such oddly matched skills as identifying more than one hundred types of tobacco, brilliantly assuming a number of disguises, and speaking with a dry, clever wit, P.K. hunts down "clew" after "clew" while trying to keep sweet Martha safe.

These action-packed mysteries are not for the faint of heart! Six-shooters, bad language, and poor choice of beverage all get fair mention in these pages.
