Gustavus Greeley is a bounty hunter, not a private detective. Nevertheless, he reluctantly accepts an assignment to travel to Elk Horn and discover whether or not Robin Warner, the town’s ex-sheriff, is guilty of being a member of the gang of stagecoach robbers plaguing the area. On the way he sees for himself the way the gang operate when the stagecoach he is on is held up and he and the other passengers are robbed and threatened.
Is the new sheriff, Casey Smart, who defeated Warner in the last elections, involved? He certainly objects to Greeley’s presence.
And what about the investment scheme to bring a spur line of the railroad to town? Does that have anything to do with what is going on?
Greeley must use his wits and his guns to find out the truth and bring those responsible to justice.
