Jim Hardie arrives in Kimball just after a stage has arrived and handed off the money aboard to the agent Henry Belman. As the stage drives away a man Jess Wilson walks up to Henry with a shotgun motioning for him to go into the office. A couple of shots ring out followed by Wilson running out of the office, leaping onto his horse and racing out of town. Jim races to the shots killing one of the three robbers and runs into the office finding Henry wounded with one of three robbers dead. They put out a poster on Jess Wilton but the description of him is so generic they receive a large volume of clues but later a clue comes in from Sheriff Sam Reach at Buttonwillow that causes Jim to follow up on it. The Sheriff tells Jim that he doubts it is the man as Jess Wilton has turned the life around for the recluse, Louise Sinclair, since her son and husband died. Initially his refusal to run makes it appear he isn't their man. Written by Anonymous
