Summary:  Ben Cartwright learns that Ringo has been terrorising properties in the Nevada region over the past several months, getting closer and closer to Virginia City.

A posse is set up to help try and arrest him and bring him to justice for the crimes and murders that he has committed.

When Ringo reaches the outskirts of Virginia City, feeling cornered by the Posse and Sheriff Coffee, the man takes a hostage, Ben’s youngest son Joe Cartwright and threatens to kill him if he is not allowed to escape, not knowing that he is any relation to the older Cartwright.

Joe has never been told about Ben’s history with the outlaw, but whilst he remains the man’s captive, learns that his father has an extensive history with Ringo.
