Краткое описание

Pinkerton's Great Detective: The Amazing Life and Times of James McParland.

The operatives of the Pinkerton's National Detective Agency were renowned for their subterfuge, infiltration, and investigation—none more so than James McParland, whose reputation mirrored the agency's own, and inspired Arthur Conan Doyle to include him in a story with Sherlock Holmes. Action-packed and full of authentic details, the book follows McParland's cases from his infiltration of the murderous Molly Maguires gang, which launched his career in the 1870s, to his controversial investigation three decades later of the Western Federation of Miners in the assassination of Idaho's former governor Frank Steunenberg."Locating the real James McParland amid the invective, acclaim and invention (including his own) is no easy task, and Beau Riffenburgh, author of Shackleton's Forgotten Expedition, has made good use of the recently released Pinkerton archives.... McParland was the prototype of a character that has become an adored part of America's cultural landscape, the hard-boiled gumshoe, the lone sleuth in search of justice."—NYTimes
