Jim Barre and Waco Ibolt have been trail partners for some years when they decide to pool their resources and take the winter months off. But after celebrating, they find themselves with only $100 left. Jim then lends that to a former work-mate, Dale Clark, who leaves an old Mexican saddle with Waco as security.
The next day Dale is found murdered, and the pair are asked to come to the inquest. But when the night deputy guns down the only suspect, it seems no money has been found on Dale or his alleged killer.
And then, Waco runs into a ranchman who very much wants to buy Jim's saddle, which he sells for cash. But, as it turns out, what the ranchman wanted wasn't that particular saddle, but the Mexican one which Dale Clark had left as security...

No BioFrom Booklist:
This classic western yarn first appeared as a five-part magazine serial in 1941. Now in book form more than a half-century later, it remains an excellent example of the straightforward and effective style that made Foster popular in the pulp-western era. When Texas trailhand Jim Barre loans another cowboy, Dale Clark, his last $200, Clark gives Jim an old Mexican saddle as security. Then Clark is murdered, and his sister, Marilee, spotting the saddle, wants Jim and his pal, Waco Ibolt, arrested. The saddle, it turns out, is the key to a lost mine. Baddies want the mine and Clark's sister's ranch and are willing to kidnap her to get them. Romance blossoms between Jim and Marilee by the time matters are sorted out. Nothing fancy, but sure to be entertaining for traditional western fans. Budd Arthur
