They have been investigating and after some “clashes” between their operatives they are sure it’s not one of them.

Guns for Hire
By Ray O’Mahony
A  FATE scenario

The West is out there, and it’s not going to win itself. Some say it’ll take heroes. It’ll take men and women with quick wits, and quicker reflexes. Folks of sterner stuff, who can take on wanted gangs like the Oklahombres without losing their cool, or their hats. People who can ride into danger head on, and laugh in the face of it.

You’re no heroes, and the townsfolk of White Oaks know it. Though when you push through the swinging saloon doors, the music dies abruptly and the barman eyes you over the glass he was cleaning. They know you’re no heroes, but you have what it takes to lock horns with the outlaws plaguing these lands. You have what it takes to win.

Once upon a time, there was an iron box. And didn’t a wicked landlord put all of his money in the box and hide it up the mountains. And didn’t the rebels shoot him for being in cahoots with the brits, cause, sure, the War of Independence was on.

So the box sits there, all full of money, waiting to be taken. Just slip the leg irons first.
