Sam McCloud is a Marshal from a Taos, New Mexico, who takes a temporary assignment in the New York City Police. His keen sense of detail and detecting subtle clues, learned from his experience, enable him to nab unsuspecting criminals despite his unbelieving boss.
The short lived story of white bounty hunter Earl Corey, who teams up with newly released slave Jemal David, to form an integrated bounty team riding the west of all criminals,both black and white, during the 1860's. Both characters are well rounded and bring the parts off quite well, making the whole thing believable. The arrangement is purely one of convenience, as there is actually no love lost between the two parties. the bickering by play between the two, sometimes simmering with racist overtones,is sometimes fascinating. this series was well written and was actually of the favorites ofthe day. It's short run could be more attributed to the ever changing racial climate of the day, as opposed to the actual quality of the series.
