Tom Bogarde leaves his studies at his Boston law school to return to Pearson City/Tucson in order to investigate the death of his brother Jack. Bogarde immediately feels the hostility of all the people because they believe that Jack killed Liz because he was in love with her and she was going to marry the banker Brandon his best friend. Brandon tries to tell Tom that Jack was the leader of a gang of outlaws called the Black Rider.  Tom does not believe his brother was a murderer or an outlaw, and is not the only one in town who has the same feelings. Bogarde's confusion is heightened when visiting his brother’s grave where he finds Lupe, the saloon owner putting flowers on the grave. Upon further inspection it is discovered that Jack's coffin is empty.
