Beginning with his early days in Scotland as a member of the radical chartists, this book covers the legendary Allan Pinkerton's days as a detective for the Chicago police force and his founding of the Northwest Detective Agency, the first of its kind in the Western hemisphere. It provides in-depth coverage of Pinkerton's role in the Civil War, where he became a trusted confidante of President Lincoln and is credited with establishing the first military intelligence unit for the United States.
