    Alonzo Church

    An old marshal, working for the US government in the fight to end the traffic in human souls, decides he needs an outlaw to infiltrate the smuggling of Chinese into the country from the Southern border. So he finds a not so bad outlaw, and runs him in, and appeals to his better nature... Now, if you can survive a sense defying narrative gambit like that, and the simple luck that gets this hero into the middle of the ring he is to break up, you might be able to read this one. Like other Max Brand, An old marshal, working for the US government in the fight to end the traffic in human souls, decides he needs an outlaw to infiltrate the smuggling of Chinese into the country from the Southern border. So he finds a not so bad outlaw, and runs him in, and appeals to his better nature... Now, if you can survive a sense defying narrative gambit like that, and the simple luck that gets this hero into the middle of the ring he is to break up, you might be able to read this one. Like other Max Brand, the plot moves merrily along and there's a Big Mystery that keeps the middle of the story interesting (along with the high concept illegal alien plotline, which is at least different from what you usually get in Westerns). Things get a little schmaltzy at the end, but the climax is fitting, and has the sweep you might find in a good late silent movie. As with Max Brand, there is a high bromance content, but in this case, the inseparable couple is the lead villain, and his somewhat gormless henchman.
