Heroin sellers Sid and Ginny Rollins want to buy "Skipper" Mason's centrally- located "Cabin Cafe" to use as a front for distributing the drug to pushers. When he reneges on selling, they murder him and go ahead with their plans. Mason's longtime friend Joe Brandon is suspicious of his unexplained disappearance to go on "vacation", and he reports the situation to the Highway Patrol. The activity coincides with narcotics agent Barney Flynn's request that Dan Mathews help with the apprehension of heroin sellers, so Dan and Flynn stake out the diner. They apprehend a known pusher who was seen leaving the diner with a brown paper bag. However, when Joe Brandon attempts to obtain incriminating evidence himself, he is abducted by Sid Rollins. Dan must engage in a high-speed chase and a gun battle to try to rescue the endangered old man. Written by Sam Spear
