Storyline

With Tony and Max's help, husband and wife Ed and Shirley Cassidy, Tony's long time friends, are hosting a hospital benefit fund-raiser. As Ed is an ex-casino owner and reformed gambler, the fund-raiser, aboard the cruise ship, the Queen Mary, docked in port, is in the form of an old west gambling den. Three men, dressed as masked cowboys, proceed to rob the benefit of the night's take of $500,000. Because of Ed's background, the authorities, based on circumstantial evidence, suspect Ed as the mastermind of the robbery. As Tony follows leads as to the robbers' whereabouts, what he and his friends eventually learn is that someone double crossed the robbers who did not walk away with the money, they who also believe that Ed is the culprit. Tony's discoveries on the matter lead to a difficult situation concerning his friendship with the Cassidys, who may have individual thoughts of their own on how they should handle the possible recovery of the moneys.
