Fuzzy's niece is killed in a stagecoach hold-up in this "Billy Carson" Western series entry starring Larry "Buster" Crabbe and Al St. John. Billy and Fuzzy quickly learn that the culprit, who not only killed all the passengers but also absconded with $40,000, may be holed up in lawless Pecos City. Teaming up with Roxy (Patti McCarty), a disgruntled singer at Grant Barlow's (I. Stanford Jolley) saloon, the heroes begin an investigation that leads straight to Ed Sperling (Karl Hackett), who claims that he was forced to join in the holdup. About to reveal the identity of the gang leader, Sperling is shot. Billy, kidnapped by the gang, learns that the true identity of the ruthless leader is known only to a man named Gordon. Making a daring escape, Billy tracks down Gordon, who is sick of the brutality and offers to give himself up. On their way back to town, Gordon is also murdered, but Billy and Fuzzy now know enough to arrest the killer, whose identity comes as a surprise to everyone but the audience.
