Synopsis >

Several people travel by bus to the Sunwest Dude Ranch, and when they arrive one of them is dead. The man, identified as Joseph Frisch, was clubbed over the head, and one of the other passengers must be guilty because the bus, made no stops. Charlie's Angels arrive at the ranch shortly after, pretending to be three innocent visitors. By flirting with each of the suspects, they try to figure out what happened. George Jackson is known as an unscrupulous private eye, and the Angels watch him carefully since whatever he is doing is probably connected with the crime. Jean Trevor, another passenger, is romantically involved with Ed Miller, and E Cole is a sullen man who says very little, but the Angels can find no con-nection between these people and Joseph Frisch. Then Charlie learns of a big real estate swindle several years ago involving all of the passengers on the bus. Miss Trevor has stated that she did not know Frisch, yet they worked together. The link is supplied when the man who died o the bus is found to be not Frisch, but Ed Miller. The real Frisch, trying to \avoid being found, killed him and took his wallet and this is the man George Jackson is being paid to find. Jackson makes a telephone call, and that afternoon two new visitors arrive, Sloan and Farrell. When they realize their plan to kill Frisch is known, they try to escape, but all the roads have been blocked. Quickly, they take two horses, and there is no way for the Angels to capture them without doing the same. Kris, Kelly and Sabrina all ride beautifully in an exciting chase. Kate Jackson, Jaclyn Smith. and Cheryl Ladd star as the Angels, Sabrina Duncan, Kelly Garrett and Kris Munroe, respectively, who work for Charlie, an unseen and very sophis-ticated boss who phones in their instructions. David Doyle stars as Bosley, Charlie's harried assistant.
