John Jones claims that it is his "stupid smile" that keeps him out of trouble. Just the opposite is true for his partner, Dennis Rourke, who attracts trouble the way a magnet attracts iron filings. The two are hired to escort an assorted group of people to a sequestered hacienda hidden away in the Sierra Negra, an area that is infested with bandits. The hacienda was the scene of an old murder and has supposedly existed under a curse ever since. Ned Palliser, a rich former sea captain, his heir, Frances Mornay, her fiance and her female companion make up the party. Matters become very complicated when it becomes evident that everyone in the Palliser party, including his heir apparent, is openly hostile to the old sea captain and, for a variety of reasons, wants to see him dead.
