Nugget Clark: You seem uncommon lucky in comin' on to other folks's jewelry - leastwise so you always say.
Dan McCabe: You're a fine jeweler, Nugget, but someday if you keep talkin' so much, I'm abt to forget that.
Nugget Clark: Hmmph. I guess the only way for me to keep from swallowing a wasp is to keep my mouth shut, huh?

Murderous Swindle
4 August 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

For one of the few times in Allan Lane's Republic westerns he is not some kind of official (US Marshal, railroad detective, postal inspector), working undercover. Instead he's just a friend looking to help a young married couple get settled in some new land they've bought in Texas. But what he doesn't know as he arrives in town is that his friends are dead and the victims of a murderous swindle.

What's happened is that they were among many victims of a phony land company which Jim Nolan owns and sells government land to people then kills them on their way to settle. A sharp eyed Eddy Waller playing a jeweler spots the brooch that Nolan brings in to his store and shows stranger Rocky Lane.

Lane may not be official, but that doesn't mean he's any less effective bringing the bad guys to justice.
