I Love, Love, LOVE it!!!! Pinky is a wonderful creation - authentic and lovable. It's exciting (I love all the cliffhangers) and funny and sometimes truly moving. Sophie McKenzie, author of Girl, Missing Scalpings, six shooters, saloons and stage coaches. Clear your calendar because you'll want to read this in a single sitting! Robert Muchamore, author of the Cherub series What we have here is a rip-roaring tale of the Wild West, with tons of credible local colour, a bunch of villains every bit as wicked as those to be found in Ancient Rome, and a likeable lead character... Original, intriguing, and a lot of fun, this book is well worth reading. THE BOOKBAG Lawrence swaps Ancient Rome for the whip-cracking Wild West in a new historical series. The Western Mysteries is set in an 1860s mining camp, which sees 12-year-old P K Pinkerton determined to outwit the outlaws and become a detective. The Roman Mysteries have an outstanding track record. THE BOOKSELLER We were only saying the other day that it is about time the Wild West came back into literary fashion, and blow me, ace historian and writer, Lawrence, inspired by the brilliant grown-up telly series Deadwood fires off the first of the PK Pinkerton mysteries, featuring a short gunslinger with a long list of disguises. -- Bookseller Crow FAMILIES SOUTH EAST I enjoyed this rip-roaring, yee-hah adventure and I particularly liked the characters... I really liked this book! -- Delilah Ferry-Swainson, age 11 FIRST NEWS I felt like I had stepped instantly back into Virginia City, right into the middle of a gun fight. I could almost hear the gun shots... this book is extremely detailed and keeps you on your toes the whole way through. The chapters are short, sharp and each one is finished off with an excellent cliff-hanger. All the characters come alive... SERENDIPITY BLOG A gripping yarn, ideally suited for boys or girls aged 9+ WE LOVE THIS BOOK Pinky is one of the most engaging heroes I have come across. TELEGRAPH ... a fast, funny adventure that cracks along as smartly as a cowboy's whip -- Amanda Craig THE TIMES ...vivid, alive and detailed... the book is full of humour... This book is quirkily different, fast-paced and great fun and I recommend it. THE SCHOOL LIBRARIAN The story moves along at a pace, is very exciting and is full of twists and turns BOOKS FOR KEEPS the action hurtles along at break-neck speed... It's fast, action-packed NATE CLASSROOM Recreating life in the 'Wild West' during the time of the American Civil War, this series is all set to be another triumph! GOOD BOOK GUIDE Featuring real historical characters, as well as convincingly portrayed fictional ones, you get the feeling that Lawrence had a whale of a time immersing herself in the lore and ephemera of the era. Her enjoyment leaves you exilherated and throroughly entertained. CAROUSEL I really enjoyed this rip-roaring, yee-hah adventure. I really liked this book! -- Delilah Ferry-Swainston FIRST NEWS I have a great fondness for first person narrative and for books with a really clear and unusual voice, so I was hooked o this story from the first page! ... I can't wait to see what PK does next. FANTASTIC READS
