A man is photographed right in the act of robbing a restaurant and killing a waitress. All the witnesses believe they recognize the killer as an older man with no previous record. But Mike begins to suspect that the case is too pat.
Mike suspects the body recently pushed into a well belongs to the man he was hired to prove is still alive. Before he can prove the two men are the same, Mike must convince miners he is still alive, since no one will risk their own lives to bring up a corpse.
