Long before the FBI and the Secret Service, the Pinkertons were the most feared law enforcement organisation in the US. Experts of undercover operative and masters of disguise, no one ever saw them coming! Set in a wild and young America, original action adventure crime procedural series 'The Pinkertons' follows founder Allan Pinkerton, his son, William, and America's first female detective, Kate Warne, as they solve crimes throughout the 'Wild West' of the 1860s. William is the shoot-first-ask-questions-maybe kind of guy, while Kate is a brilliant forensics expert, and master of undercover work. The two of them mix like lantern oil and creek water. Where Kate believes thoughtful analysis and forensic technology is what it takes to solve crimes, William lives by the words his father taught him: to catch a criminal, you have to think like a criminal. Over the course of the first season, what they learn is that, to catch a criminal, it takes both brains and bravery.
