Cheyenne is a Marshal working with Deputy Mal Wheeler charged with tracking down all the Comancheros in the New Mexico Territory. Their last target is Rafe Larkin who they track to a burned out ranch where the Comanches killed the couple living there. Cheyenne and Mal run across a man hiding in the rocks. He claims he is just prospecting for gold but Cheyenne suspects he's really Rafe Larkin, the Comanchero they've been looking for. Mal is wounded in an ambush so Cheyenne takes him into the nearest town, Tascosa. The sheriff and townspeople prove less than friendly when they find out who he brought to town. Now he just has to keep Rafe locked up long enough for a trial, fend off a lynch mob and get some sleep -- all without any help from the locals until a young man Benji Danton offers his. Cheyenne swears in Benji as a deputy but to his dismay the next day he learns he is the son of the couple killed and his fiancé is missing who Rafe has as a prisoner. Written by
