The Case of the Pistol-Packing Widows

£6.99

I had promised Ma Evangeline I would never gamble, but we were not playing poker for money. We were playing for Mr Jason Francis Montgomery. My name is P.K. Pinkerton, Private Eye. This is an account of how taking a case in Carson City got me quicksanded, buzz-sawed & blizzarded. And also blasted by a pistol-packing widow.

Description

From the million-copy-selling author of The Roman Mysteries comes the third whip-cracking adventure in this award-winning series.

When P.K. is suddenly abducted, he fears he’s going to be thrown in the river to drown. In fact, he’s about to get a new case. He must travel to Carson City, don a disguise and shadow his friend and mentor, Poker Face Jace. But Jace isn’t easy to fool, P.K.’s widow woman disguise is horribly uncomfortable and, as if that’s not bad enough, it seems somebody might be trying to kill him! Can P.K. survive amid the gun-slingers, gamblers and desperados of Carson City?
