Storyline

Brit Condor's vicious gang was driving out the citizens of Silver City with unrelenting raids and robberies. Banker John Thornton promises the townspeople he'd bury their money secretly and safely, and later they could return and claim what belonged to each. But the morning the town was to be evacuated, after Thornton sent his daughter Helen to get lawyer John Sutton, someone put a bullet through his heart. And near his body stood Fred Mason, a man who wanted to fight Condor instead of fleeing the town. In his hand was a smoking gun and he was convicted of murder. Helen went to live with her guardian, "Nugget" Clark, who owned a stagecoach relay station, and all would have ended there...except that six years later, Fred escapes from prison. Deputy Marshal "Rocky" Lane takes up his trail, sure that Fred will return to Silver City to get the $100,000 no one had ever been able to find. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

The Stolen Loot
31 July 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

In Salt Lake Raiders Allan Lane is once again a US Marshal on the trail of recently escaped Myron Healey who swears he was framed for the murder of the bank president of Silver City and being part of the infamous Condor gang who robbed the bank. Martha Hyer is the daughter of the late president who once loved Healey but now wants him dead. Only Eddy Waller who runs the Stagecoach line believes Healey.

But all of them wind up prisoners of the Condors, brothers Roy Barcroft and Clifton Young and assorted henchmen. They're all being held at the now deserted Silver City until Healey comes up with the loot. Problem is that Healey was framed and doesn't know anything.

In addition to the usual gunplay and western action, Salt Lake Raiders has a lot of tension in it as the resourceful Rocky Lane has to think very fast on his feet. The Condors are mean, brutish and nasty, but definitely not stupid. There's also a real weasel of a lawyer played by Byron Foulger who has a role in all this.

So far this is one of Allan Lane's best Republic features and a must for his fans.
