Judge Barnaby Cade is a wily old drunk just released from prison and on the trail of the ill-gotten gains from bank robberies, stage hold up and an army payroll robbery that he and the Chawcktaw Johnson gang stole. The problem is he doesn't know exactly where it is and needs a guide to help him find it. An investigator from the Adjutant General of the Army has been been following Cade since his release from prison, hoping that he will lead him to the money. When Cade gets thrown in jail for being very drunk and somewhat disorderly, the investigator approaches the sheriff about Cade. The sheriff suggests Slim Sherman to pose as a guide but it's decided that Slim is too well known to pull it off so Jess Harper agrees to masquerade as a down on his luck guide for Cade. So begins a journey that finds Jess slowly outnumbered as men from Chawcktaw's gang join the ranks, each carrying a piece of the route and each fearing the rest as they reveal their piece of the route to the money. The men... Written by Anonymous

No honor among these thieves
1 December 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This Laramie story involves Robert Fuller doing a job for the army who originally wanted John Smith for it. But as Slim Sherman is too well known in the area for being such a straight arrow, it's Jess Harper who gets the nod from law enforcement.

Fuller gets himself thrown in the pokey with a drunken John McIntire who maybe a drunk, but he's no fool. He wants a guide to lead him to some area where his former gang has buried their ill gotten gains and Fuller has that reputation.

They have a most complicated scheme as to how they arrive at the burial site done so to insure that no one doublecrosses anyone. Still the betrayals happen and the gang starts getting killed off one by one. No honor among this band of thieves.

The ending is kind of easy to figure out, still it's a good and exciting story.
