The Candy Kid

(1950)
A novel by

 
Jose Aragon is a ranch hand between jobs. Looking and smelling just like a piece of border-town trash, he's hoping the Chenoweth Hotel, El Paso, will let him in for a much-needed shower, a room and a couple of cold beers.

But a beautiful and wealthy woman with golden-brown hair, Dulcinda Farrar, mistakes him for a local, and offers him money to pick up a package for her. Jose goes along for the ride, but his playfulness is about to get him in trouble.

Just minutes after he's picked up the package, it disappears, and suddenly he has the border's toughest thugs on his tail. Jose knows how to round up a herd of cattle, but a classy blonde is going to prove more difficult . . . and more dangerous.
