This fall, Judith McMonigle Flynn can barely cope with her gaggle of guests at Hillside Manor B&B. And when diminutive daredevil and martial-arts movie icon Wee Willie Weevil insists on performing his dangerous stunts from Judith's roof--and ends up leaving the B&B via ambulance--the harried hostess decides it's high time to escape the domestic mayhem, joining irrepressible cousin Renie on a cross-country train trip with first-class accommodations to Boston on the Empire Builder.
Unfortunately, a wheelchair-bound Wee Willie and his entourage are also on board, effectively derailing their vacation. And when the train collides with a truckload of sugar beets, stranding the cousins in Middle-of -Nowhere, Montana, they soon have two murders on their hands. A fellow traveler and a crew member have reached their final destinations prematurely--and unless Judith and Renie can blow the whistle on a killer, they themselves may end up being railroaded to the boneyard.
