Kid Parmlee and his partner Zeb Pike get mistook for bank robbers, and work on clearing their names.
Told in a "Western" vernacular, it's a bit of a struggle to get into, but is worth it once you get past that.
The Kid is a good protagonist and the story seems to be more about his misadventures along the way rather than a gunfight on every page.

The action is good when it gets going, with the usual mix of good and bad folk that you'd expect.

I like a good Western. This was one did not have a great plot and the authors attempts at dialogue fell flat to the point of amnoying me big time. Every new character entered, they became Ole X. No matter how long they were arround: Ole Chastain, Ole Red, Ole Weaver, Ole Churkee, Ole Etcetera. Where was his editor?
