Corey Recko’s first book, Murder on the White Sands: The Disappearance of Albert and Henry Fountain (University of North Texas Press, 2007), won the Wild West History Association’s award for the “Best Book on Wild West History” for 2007. New Mexico Magazine said of the book, “The story moves along like detective fiction . . . .” Since the publication of that book, Recko has written articles on a variety of historical topics for magazines and historical journals and has become a sought after speaker. While working on Murder on the White Sands he began to research Pinkerton’s National Detective Agency. The result was the discovery of new information that Recko included in his book and in subsequent biographic articles that he wrote about Pinkerton operative John C. Fraser for the WWHA Journal and Wild West magazine. His research into Pinkerton’s agency also led to his discovery of largely forgotten agent Timothy Webster, the subject of his new book, A Spy for the Union: The Life and Execution of Timothy Webster (McFarland & Co., 2013).
