A murderous gang of counterfeiters has kidnapped John Severn, the U.S. government’s best engraver, who is being held against his will and is forced to print virtually undetectable phony cash. The United States Secret Service sends its toughest agent, Jack Holt, and his female partner, Kay Drew, after the gang. Holt and his boss Malloy decide to try to pass Holt off as escaped tough guy, Nick Farrel. Masquerading as the bickering Mr. and Mrs. Farrel, Holt and Drew manage to infiltrate the ruthless gang of thugs and the tough talk and action never stops from there on. Holt’s hunches lead him to the culprits and into trouble on a canoe ride and in an outlaw camp, as the action moves from the gang’s hideout in a lost canyon to a gambling ship on the high seas to a small island country where the gang hopes to escape U.S. extradition.
