A reading from the pioneers of true crime.
From the Archives of the Pinkertons by Cleveland Moffett
This episode begins with a daring train robbery and tells the story of how one of America’s most famed detectives, the esteemed William Pinkerton, solves a string of seemingly unrelated robberies while tracking the lone bandit down.
The exciting tale is told by Cleveland Moffett, a New York journalist who wrote mystery stories on the side and in 1905 syndicated a series of articles about the exploits of the Pinkerton Detectives that was published in newspapers across the country.
