When Holt's partner, Martin, receives notice that his uncle has died, the two ride off to see about the inheritance. Upon arrival they find that the uncle was murdered and that his son, Norris, has been accused of the crime. Investigation proves that a local official and two real estate

promotors, Wilcox, Livingston, and Tannen, are the real culprits, out to steal the ranch from its rightful owners. Though the plot seems like just another western, this is a fairly good entry in the Holt series. There's a nice air of suspense in the telling, mixed with humor, action, and a little

romance. The music is a nice touch, lending the action a suspenseful ambiance.
