Hud Hudson was born and grew up and events turned him to a life of crime. So after a stint in prison, he formed his own gang. They went around and robbed banks and jewelry stores during the Golden Age of Bank Robberies. But history reported that Hud Hudson and fellow gang member Ester Walker died during a farm house explosion in 1934. Forty-four years had passed since public enemies Hud Hudson and Ester Walker died in that farm house explosion. In Gibsland, Illinois, James Randall was a wannabe crime novelist that got a nagging gut feeling that his old neighbor just might be that famous Hud Hudson. James believed Hud Hudson did not die in that explosion in 1934. So James goes on the hunt to find evidence to prove history was wrong - and finally bring Hud Hudson to justice.
