Carl Wilcox and his bride, Hazel, are on their honeymoon, canoeing on the St. Croix River between Minnesota and Wisconsin, camping out, listening to the night sounds . . . when they hear the sound of a scream and a gunshot that aren't part of any travel brochure. It wasn't quite what the Wilcoxes had planned for the night.
Beneath a bluff on the far shore, as a freight train's whistle blows, Carl and Hazel see a body on the tracks. Without stopping to think, Wilcox drags the young man off the tracks as the freight cannonballs past. The boy's dead . . . and so's the honeymoon.
The local sheriff isn't pleased when he discovers that Carl isn't a good suspect. But he's happy to have the couple help unravel the mystery of the unknown dead man, a horn player with a college band, and only one of several men who've been making advances toward the beautiful young Kat. She doesn't mind the advances as long as no one gets pushy, but there are many around her who do . . . and any one of them might be a murderer.
