The Secret Service receives a letter from a man named Arthur Cole, resident of a town called New Athens, claiming knowledge of a matter so important he can only reveal it face to face. West and Gordon are sent to investigate. They discover the citizens of New Athens are fleeing town due to the arrival of a band of cut-throat outlaws. Attempting to meet with Cole, West and Gordon find their potential informant murdered. Rescuing mayor John Cassidy from an altercation with the outlaws, West and Gordon learn a recent arrival in town, Mike Trayne, was once a rich, influential citizen of New Athens. The mayor believes the outlaws are Trayne's method of exacting revenge on the town that sent Trayne to jail three years before. West and Gordon are now the town's only hope of survival.
