In Salt Lake Raiders Allan Lane is once again a US Marshal on the trail of recently escaped Myron Healey who swears he was framed for the murder of the bank president of Silver City and being part of the infamous Condor gang who robbed the bank. Martha Hyer is the daughter of the late president who once loved Healey but now wants him dead. Only Eddy Waller who runs the Stagecoach line believes Healey.
But all of them wind up prisoners of the Condors, brothers Roy Barcroft and Clifton Young and assorted henchmen. They're all being held at the now deserted Silver City until Healey comes up with the loot. Problem is that Healey was framed and doesn't know anything.
In addition to the usual gunplay and western action, Salt Lake Raiders has a lot of tension in it as the resourceful Rocky Lane has to think very fast on his feet. The Condors are mean, brutish and nasty, but definitely not stupid. There's also a real weasel of a lawyer played by Byron Foulger who has a role in all this.
So far this is one of Allan Lane's best Republic features and a must for his fans.
