Legend Of The Black Dove
(Part 3) "Outlaw Peril"
As the coach approaches, the Black Dove grabs the under frame
Of the coach, with his amazing strength climbs on the driver's
Seat and brings the coach to a halt by pulling the reins.
He turns the coach back to where Rex Murphy is standing
And continue their journey. Hours later they stop to rest at the
Golden Anchor - a tavern in the coastal town of Southerly.
It is getting dark and they manage to get a room to spend the night.
It is a peaceful town overlooking the sea. Everything seemed to be
Quiet as Rex Murphy secures the Golden Coach for the night, but in
Darkness Jack Wild and his men had followed the coach and
Plan to steal it while the town is asleep. The Black Dove and Rex were
Ready to turn in for the night when they are startled by a woman's
Scream. In a flash the Black Dove is on the scene, and seeing a girl being
Assaulted, he takes quick action and grabs the assailant and overpowers
Him. The Man is then tied up and held prisoner in the tavern. The girl seemed
To be alright and tells The Black Dove she is the publican's daughter and
She was grabbed by this man who would not let her go. While this is
Going on, gunshots ring out and the Golden Coach appeared to be missing.
The Black Dove notices the coach leaving the security compound along
With three men following the coach. The Dove and Murphy rush in pursuit
Of them and a chase begins, the coach gathers speed and drives out of
Town. Minutes later they all arrive at an abandoned gold mine. The
Outlaws unload the gold under fire and put it into a rail cart. Two of
The outlaws push the rail car down tracks into the mine, the remaining
Two men are holding off the Dove and Murphy, then they run inside the
Mine to join Jack Wild and his accomplice. Rex and the Dove, rush in after
Them in an attempt to rescue the gold but they come to grips with the
Outlaws and a shot is fired which creates a cave-in in the mine trapping
All the men. Seconds later a rumble is heard from the ground caused by
An earth tremor. The Dove goes after Jack Wild who intends to shoot the
Black Dove with his pistol, but they both fall into a large open pit of
Will either man survive these sharp limestone pinnacles?
Are the other men also doomed?...
Find out in the next exciting part...."The Imposter"
