Plot Overview

Grace Turner double crosses the Kid when he is in Mexico on business and gets the $10,000 reward for his capture.

However, she regrets her action as she finds that she has fallen in love with the Kid and later breaks him out of prison. This has the unfortunate effect of making it look as though Heyes and Curry were involved in collecting their own reward money.

Heyes sets up an elaborate 'sting' with Soapy Saunders called The Big Store to get the money back from Grace and thus to clear his and the Kid's names.
