Myra Davis masterminds a plot by which her husband Les escapes from the law while being escorted to a trial. Their son Ralph shoots and kills a deputy sheriff in the process. Dan Mathews and Sergeant Williams travel quickly to the Davis home, but the cocksure Myra has already transported Ralph and Les to a remote location. She then slips a tail and gets them safely back to the Davis home, where they plan to hide for a few days before fleeing to Mexico. Dan, Sergeant Williams, and a plainclothes officer return to the home and surround it after Dan satisfies himself that Les and Ralph Davis are now hiding inside. A pitched gun battle ensues, with neither side willing (or able) to show the other any mercy whatsoever. Written by Sam Spear
