Summary: Set in Comanche Creek, Colorado, 1875, Audie Murphy plays a Pinkerton-style detective in this action Western named Bob Gifford. At the same time, prisoner Jack Mason, is busted out of jail by a group of strangers. The jail breakers' motives are not selfless because they use Mason to pull a robbery. When the reward on the robber is high enough, the schemers kill him for the bounty. In the meantime, the National Detective Agency is wise to the gang's methods and sends in Detective Gifford. He pretends to be a wanted man to tempt the outlaws to take him to their hideout. They force him to rob the bank which puts a price on his head. When the price gets high enough, they plan to follow their previously successful strategy to collect the reward money. However, the tables are turned and the outlaws are soon faced with lots of surprises. But the question is how will the bait, Detective Gifford, get off the hook?
