I received a note from the author, Robert Kroeger, about his new book being offered free on Amazon Kindle January 5-9th (regularly $9.99). I thought maybe someone who likes golf and whisky would like to read it for the Read Scotland 2015 challenge!
Also this one sounds really good too. Only available free today, January 5th, though.
The Molly Maguires and the Detectives by Allan Pinkerton
Allan Pinkerton, founder of the first modern American detective agency, published gripping mystery novels based on his organization's case files.
Here, Pinkerton sends an agent undercover among unionizing coal miners in a battle against a radical secret society that will change the face of American labor forever.
This event happened here in the state I live in, Pennsylvania. The prison where the Molly Maguiries were executed is now a museum.
