Spying on the spy
20 September 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

When US Marshal Don Collier sees Gary Clarke getting reacquainted with Ruta Lee at the Medicine Bow saloon he gets a hold of Lee J. Cobb and requests the use of Clarke's services. As a spy.

For some time Collier has suspected that Lee gets a lot of inebriated people to supply her with intelligence that notorious outlaw leader Peter Mark Richman uses for jobs. Lee and Clarke grew up together in Kansas City and he's the perfect man to spy on a spy.

The job calls for Clarke to quit Shiloh and adopt a lot of free spending and dissolute ways and the pressure on him is not something he's liking.

An interesting tale from The Virginian.
