Agent Cheyenne is just two weeks into his job as an agent for the railroad when bandits stop the train and steal the shipment of gold he's guarding. Cheyenne believes he knows the identity of the masked leader of the gang from his voice. But he doesn't get a fair hearing from the sheriff of Crestline after a dying bandit oddly names Bodie as the gang leader. Cheyenne makes a hasty retreat from town and rides south of the border to clear his name.

Cheyenne rides into a small town named Cabrizo to find a man named Giff Murdock, who he knew from the past and believes is the leader. As he asks around town about Murdock, people are tight-lipped. One thing they are certain of -- Murdock never leaves the area. He's seen every day by the locals. An insistent local named Julio shadows Cheyenne, then offers his assistance as a personal interpreter. Cheyenne prefers to be alone, but after not making much progress in finding Murdock, Julio finally wins him over.
