The Case of the Deadly Desperados by Caroline Lawrence ***
I would give T. Sands' audio presentation of this title 4 stars. The only reason I hold back a little on the story itself is I find the audience a little questionable. This is a rip-roaring western mystery set in 1862. P.K. Pinkerton's parents have just been murdered and P.K. travels to Virginia City in an attempt to escape the ruthless desperadoes and claim his deed to a large amount of land and silver mines. Along the way P.K. acquires some interesting acquaintances including Samuel Clements. The story is entertaining and the characters intriguing. The title does include plenty of salty words, a dash of gore, and some questionably mature references.
