Did you know that the founder of the American secret service was from Glasgow? This week I take a look at the life of Allan Pinkerton, founder of the Pinkerton National Detective Agency, and how he and his crew foiled a plot to assassinate Abraham Lincoln. It's a story of gun-slinging, murder, espionage, and cowboys. So welcome to Allan Pinkerton's Wild West!
