The problem is Del Layton dies and leaves the money to the town but nobody can find the strongbox. Mace Stringer provides very helpful clues but the townspeople begin to think Slim has stolen the money because of Mace. Some also think that Slim let the murderer 'escape' only to be shot. Mace is the big man in town and he wants Sally from the saloon. He wants her bad enough to lie, cheat and murder for the Layton's money and Slim has to figure it out before it's too late and his reputation is ruined. Written by DarSpi
