West and Gordon pursue Norbet Plank, murderer and bookkeeper for a crime syndicate, to the town of Epitaph, Colorado, where he expects to be protected by his boss, Diamond Dave Desmond. The agents hope to bring down the syndicate by capturing Plank and forcing him to turn over the organization's records. Working from within and without Desmond's gang, the agents do finally manage to get hold of Plank, but getting ''into'' Epitaph proves to be a whole lot easier than getting ''out'' again.
