Jess makes a stop in a small dilapidated town in northern Texas called Dundee to turn in the dead body of a rapist and murderer. The town, which used to be a bustling and thriving place, is slowly heading downward. He meets some of the people there and even stays the night with Elmer, a poor man he takes a liking to.

He leaves Dundee to travel to Clearwater, where he meets Eruin Resch, the owner of a gold mine that is about to shut down. Resch hires Jess to help guard his last shipments of gold to the town of Crater to be put on the train and transferred to Missouri.

He discovers that Beecher Stillson, a well-known bank robber is hanging around the Dundee area and that some bad hombres are going there to meet up with him. Jess unknowingly kills three of Stillson’s men before they make it to the hideout where the rest of his gang are waiting.

Jess starts putting things together and the lead starts flying. Jess has to make sure the last three gold shipments make it to Crater safely. In the meantime, he starts investing in the town of Dundee to bring it back to the way it was years ago, hoping to convince Resch into investing in his old hometown as well. As the town comes back to life, it attracts some good people, along with some bad. Can Jess save the town of Dundee while making sure the gold shipments get safely to their destination all at the same time?
