Emmett Bodie and his gang of cutthroats hit the Cripple Creek to Aspen Falls train just as hard as they could. They took $60,000 from the Wells Fargo car and left a trail of dead men behind them. But when Clay Nash finally tracked the gang down, all but $10,000 of the money had apparently vanished into thin air.
From then on, finding the missing money became an obsession with Clay – one that quickly put him at odds with his boss, Jim Hume, and put his career as Wells Fargo’s top detective in jeopardy. Finally, when Bodie escaped Clay’s custody during an attempt to escape from a lynch mob, Clay became a man nobody could rely on … and nobody wanted around!
