Tom Cameron, the Lone Rider, pretends to be an outlaw named Keno -- a task made easier due to the fact that Tom looks exactly like the outlaw. He pretends to be the outlaw in order to find Keno's accomplices, and recover a large sum of stolen money from Keno's last heist. Unfortunately for the Lone Rider, one of the outlaw's buddies, Blackie Dawson, begins to suspect Tom is not who he claims to be.
