Synopsis for "The Lair of the Parrot!"
Jonah Hex is at a bar in the American town of Wyandott, Texas when he is seemingly arrested by the sheriff. This turns out to be an act, as the sheriff was working with a United States Secret Service agent in order to recruit Hex in order for him to spy on a gang of ambitious criminals that are targeting government establishments and gathering followers. Hex agrees for a sum of $10,000. Jonah Hex finds the leader of the gang, El Papagayo, and attempts to earn his trust. Jonah Hex quickly evades the gang after El Papagayo orders them to kill Hex. Upon returning to Wyandott, Hex discovers that the apparent Secret Service agent was actually a criminal that framed him for murder. Elsewhere, the "agent" returns to his employer. The mysterious employer kills the "agent", as he no longer has any use for him.
