This Autry entry has Larry Evans (Russell Arms), whose gun had been used to kill rancher Ed Norton (Stanley Blystone) in a poker game, escaping a lynching party headed by ranchers Dave Randall (Jack Holt) and Bill Otis (Fred Kohler, Jr.) Norton's friend Gene Autry (Gene Autry), investigating on his own, discovers that Larry's gun had been put in the poker pot with the chips, after Larry had lost all of his money, and anyone could have used it when the lights went out. He finds Larry and his sister Mary Evans (Barbara Britton) in a hideaway, and sends Mary back to town and hides Larry in the cabin of miner Jim Hedge (Clem Bevans). Finding out that Randall and Don Mason (Robert Shayne) have tried to buy the Evans ranch, Gene decides to take a look at it. Hedge shows up and says he can't figure out what could be on the ranch that would be worth committing murder for. The needle on Hedge's compass begins to spin madly but before Gene can question the miner, Sheriff Cramer (Chill Wills) arrives and arrests Larry. Gene persuades Cramer to gather all the players in the murder-game together to re-enact the crime, with Gene taking Norton's chair and with Larry's gun on the table. Gene tells the assembled players he knows who killed Norton and why, and the lights go out and a shot is fired at Gene.
