KIRKUS REVIEW

Ben Fargo's threat against the self-interested Judge and townspeople who sent him (framed him?) to jail becomes a reality when he breaks out and returns to intimidate the town. Only Clint, deputy sheriff, and ""stupidly honest"" is man enough to stand up to Fargo, his confederate and his collaborator (the father of the girl he loves). A set-up situation for a knock-down fight which is handled with more than average competence.
