A violent snowstorm strands fourteen strangers inside a depot waiting for the next train out. Tensions further rise when a mysterious man enters with a gun and reveals that one of them murdered his wife and stabbed him. But, before he can identify the suspect, he collapses in Reggie’s arms and whispers his last words. Who among them is the killer, and will any of them survive the night?

Will Mr. REE and Reggie solve the case before the train departs with the murderer on it?
