Bat Garrett is hired by wealthy Dallas oil man Franklin Gaston who thinks someone is trying to kill him. Bat is skeptical, but later that day the man is murdered and all signs point to the half-brother of the man’s recently-dumped mistress. The lawyers for Gaston’s estate—led by the beautiful Heather Dawson—want Bat to just go away, but Gaston’s college-age daughter wants Bat to stay on the case.
Working behind the scenes, Bat discovers that Franklin Gaston was a bigamist, with another family stashed in a Denver suburb. As he digs deeper, he finds that Gaston wasn’t just a serial bigamist and philanderer, his activities may have had a much larger—and nefarious—purpose than just self gratification.
