In the Old West, a train is rumbling toward the town of Whiskey Junction, where the liquor flows fast and the bullets fly faster. Passengers include prospectors headed to their claims, a schoolmarm headed to her new job and thirsty cowpunchers headed for the renowned WJ Saloon.

When the train emerges into the light, her lifeless body is lying in the aisle. Who killed her? Was it YOU?
