Synopsis

Montero, a killer, and his aide Coloso, a vicious deafmute, are pursued through the sand dunes of Arizona by "Bob Cat" Manners and his posse. Montero plans to rob the bank of skinflint Perkins but is sidetracked by singing teacher Helen Wardell; he learns that Perkins has marital designs on her and holds a $3,000 mortgage on the ranch of her fiancé, Howard. Perkins, recognizing Montero as a wanted man, offers him money to kill Howard, but Montero merely fakes the murder. Prepared for a doublecross, Montero takes the posse prisoners and collects the blood money from Perkins, who as justice of the peace is forced to marry Helen and Howard.
