Lincoln’s Spymaster

Lincoln's SpymasterAllan Pinkerton, America’s First Private Eye

Written by Samantha Seiple

Fascinating book about Allen Pinkerton’s career as a detective. The book starts when Allen Pinkerton accidentally became a detective. It tells how so many of our words and ideas of what a detective does came from the Pinkerton detectives. I didn’t know that he also helped create the Secret Service agency in the US. He and his sons were involved in so many high profile cases from all over the country and eventually around the world.
