A stage coach passenger recognizes the voice of Tom Fox from Oklahoma who robbed the stage and killed the man riding shotgun. Parmalee sends Reese and Chad to Dry Wells to confer with the sheriff there as it is the one place untouched by outlaws. They find him missing with a new sheriff in his place plus several known outlaws wanted in Oklahoma but not Texas. They discover a man, Finnegan, appears to be running an eastern style crime gang. After Reese appears to have killed Fox, Parmalee sends Erik and Joe in undercover as a pair of outlaws from Arizona to join Finnegan's gang. Finnegan decides to kill Reese who was knocked out by Erik to stop a fight. Joe and Erik plot to save Reese and capture several of the men in a trap. However, when the real outlaws from Arizona arrive in Dry Wells, Chad, Erik, and Joe are taken prisoner and put in a mine set to explode while Reese is in Laredo playing dead - supposedly.

Dry Wells, run with eastern style efficiency
12 December 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A stagecoach holdup occurs, a shotgun guard is killed and based on a voice identification of the masked bandit, Philip Carey sends Neville Brand and Peter Brown to investigate the town of Dry Wells where there's an eastern style town boss, trained in Chicago trying to become the Professor Moriarty of crime in Texas. It all depends on him importing out of state talent that isn't wanted in the Lone Star state.

Malachi Throne plays Finnegan who learned politics and other arts on the South side of Chicago. He finds however his methods are a hard sell to outlaws accustomed to doing their own thing.

William Smith and Robert Wolders go in disguise to Dry Wells as a pair of outlaws wanted in Arizona territory.

Of course in the end Malachi Throne's attempt to become the Mayor Daley of Dry Wells come up short as you knew they would.

Nicely done all around.
