Charles Bronson plays a Denver Tribune crime reporter named Garret Smith who is investigating the circumstances of a massacre in the isolated Mormon community between two feuding brothers, both of whom deny responsibility, though blame the other. Turns out a third party is trying to cause a rift between them, so that their valuable property can be seized. Smith then becomes determined to find out who, even at risk to his own life.
Surprisingly different role for Charles Bronson(he does not play the title character!) and he is quite good in it too, clearly enjoying doing something different. It's too bad that the film, while interesting, peters out into such an obvious conspiracy thriller, since it could have instead took a thoughtful look at the Mormon community, rather than having it in the background. Still, one of the better Bronson films from the end of his career.
