Lars Bonner rode into the little town of Rocky Canyon with the bodies of two outlaws tied across their horses. He is also returning the money the two had robbed from the town's bank. The town doesn't have a sheriff. It seems the last one to hold that positon left town without so much as a goodbye. At first it seems he will have nowhere to deliver the corpses in order to collect his bounty. However, the mayor who is also the banker agrees to sign the required affidavits. The mayor isn't concerned why the bodies are mangled. He's more interested in getting Bonner to accept the job of sheriff. Aware Bonner will continue to pursue his profession as a bounty hunter even if he accepts the sheriff's positon, he doesn't know that on a full moon, Bonner doesn't rely on his weapons to capture his quarry.
