Conrad Browning, aka Kid Morgan was reluctant to take the offer made by the Texas Rangers. Both of them. The first was a permanent badge as a Ranger. The second was the undercover mission for them that would require he go into prison.

You see, a pattern had emerged involving prison escapes. A bank robber would escape and then become involved in a series of bank robberies. His face was never covered and the inevitable killing on jobs here and there would drive the bounty on him up. Then he would be illed and taken in for the bounty. It had happened several times and it was always the same bounty hunter.

A young woman had come to the Rangers, Katherine Lupo, and begged for help. Yes, her father had been a bank robber and was serving his time. He sworn to go straight when he got out. And the thing was, he always planned his jobs carefully. No one was ever hurt on them.

The Ranger believed there was someone in the prison working with these outlaws. They wanted the Kid to go in as an outlaw named Reese. The hope was he would be broken out and they could find the ringleader before making arrests. A Ranger would be placed to follow them and when the Kid gave the signal, he'd get a band of Rangers and move in.

A good plan. Nut as usual with these things, good plans go awry sometime.

Liked this one.
