The lovely Alma Lowell recently arrived in Medicine Bow and bought the Lazy K ranch for cash from a man who ran the ranch himself. She finds she needs a foreman to control the ranch hands. She meets Steve and over tea asks him if he would be her foreman. He turns down the job initially but after ribbing from The Virginian and Shiloh hands, he decides to take it. At the Lazy K he notices an empty modified gun which he mentions to Alma who says the previous owner left it for her. Jess Carver on the hunt for Alma finds her in Medicine Bow. Alma tells Steve he is stalking her. Jess wants $50,000 dollars from Alma but she invested it in the ranch. She says Steve has control of the deed to the ranch. She invites Jess to the ranch at night where she sets him up to be shot by a naive Steve. When Steve confronts her about a switch of guns, she decides to frame Steve for the murder.
