The ranch house at Wheeler's Flying H Ranch was decked out in all its finery for a wedding. The only problem was that Joe Rich, sheriff of Pinnacle City, hadn't shown up. Joe got himself so drunk, he couldn't get up, much less walk a bride down the aisle. Embarrassed and properly chastened, Joe leaves town. But the next day, the father of his fiancée is found dead. Lucky for the folks of Pinnacle City that Hashnife Hartley -- America's most famous cowboy-detective -- and his sidekick Sleepy Stevens, have drifted into town.
