| The great silk caper
Sometimes it doesn't pay to be a Good Samaritan. The Three Mesquiteers stop to help a driver of a wrecked truck as they were returning from a rodeo. They have the horse trailer as well tied to their cab. The people in the wreck however turn the tables on Robert Livingston, Ray Corrigan, and Max Terhune. They steal their rig and hold the Mesquiteers hostage. In a shootout with the authorities the robbers are killed and the Mesquiteers are held as part of the gang.

The writers were sure getting a little lame on this one. Seems that it would have been a simple matter to ascertain the guys just came from competing in a rodeo. Still it's lynch talk that's brewing and the guys have to escape and capture the bandits.

The loot in this case is silk, taken from a freight train. There isn't even much detective work involved as the Mesquiteers just happen to stumble on to the hideout. Good chase climax in the end.

Not one of the best Mesquiteer stories.
