After $20,000 is stolen from the Weber Falls office and the agent Ben King is killed, Jim Hardie is sent to investigate. He finds no shortage of suspects including three convicts one of which is engaged to King's daughter Anne.
Jim Hardy is sent by Wells Fargo to investigate the theft of $20,000 in gold bullion at Weber Falls. In addition, the agent Ben King was killed during the robbery leaving his daughter Anne. When Jim arrives he meets with Marshal Emmett Clegg who describes the robbery. Anne found Ben shortly after he was killed but there is no sign of how the over 100 pounds of gold was removed. He assumes there was probably more than one person involved to carry that much weight but he doesn't think it has left the town as no one has left with a wagon or horse. Jim asks about strangers in town to which Clegg responds there were two men who worked for a rancher but quit. The other person of interest is Johnny Hogan who is an ex-convict and engaged to Anne King. While talking to Johnny, the two strangers arrive in town with a known outlaw. Written by
