Synopsis by Sandra Brennan

In this Western, an outlaw tries to escape from a gang of robbers after they refuse to assist a gang member wounded during a stagecoach caper. He and the wounded outlaw leave and try to steal a stagecoach as their ex-gang robs it. The sheriff's daughter observes the incident. Believing that the two outlaws were trying to save the stage, she takes them into town where the "heroes" are given jobs working for the stage. The wounded crook really does want to go straight, but his partner is only interested in waiting for the perfect caper so he can retire in style. As he is guarding an office, his old gang busts in. Soon the truth about his past is revealed. For revenge he shows the posse the location of the robbers' hideout. He then captures the leader, which results in a pardon for he and his partner. The protagonist then marries the sheriff's daughter.
