The Pinkerton Files is based on the new audio series starring Battlestar Galactica's Michael Hogan. It sets the real cases of America’s first private detective in a world of radical inventions driving a bitterly divided nation toward civil war.
Agency founder Allan Pinkerton senses a conspiracy mounting against him, his sons and his operatives. Every step they take toward solving three seemingly disconnected cases draws them further into a conflict that will be their downfall. If Allan allows them to become embroiled in the war, they will never find their way out.
Lincoln and the Golden Circle launches as a simple assignment to protect a rail line from sabotage but explodes when one of Allan’s agents is murdered, his son is arrested and his protege is wickedly assaulted. With police descending on his headquarters, Allan must choose whether to commit his detectives to a death defying sprint in a final attempt to save the President’s life.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would and I will.
Was Lincoln and the Golden Circle worth the listening time?
A short story of the Pinkerton detectives certainly worth a listen.
Entire book is treated as personal memoirs that are disjointed and tell the story from multiple angles. Set in an alternate historical timeline where trains are on elevated rails and Gypsies have bolted on shanties to the side of long haul trains. If a free Appendix was included that listed the Main history that goes along with the secret anexes that this book compiles then it would make more sense.
