Twelve-year-old P.K. Pinkerton is on the run from ruthless (what else?) desperados in this delightfully down-and-dirty Western, the first in a series. Voiced by T. Sands, P.K. is a plucky and relatable tween who runs through disguises in an 1862 silver-mining town that is notable for its steep, muddy streets; bars; Chinese laundries; and opium dens. As she did in her Roman mystery series, Lawrence keeps the history gritty and real. Sands is a female reader who does justice to everyone from gruff outlaw Whittlin' Walt to a pre-Mark Twain Samuel Clemens, She even lends sympathy to P.K.'s frenemy, “Soiled Dove.” Sands gives P.K. the humor, curiosity, and spunk to survive in a cutthroat world. This is a perfect marriage of narrator and book. M.M.C. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2012]
