1882 - Northern Arizona.

As part of yet another Transcontinental Railroad (this one intended to link Springfield, Missouri and Van Buren, Arkansas to Los Angeles through northern Arizona), the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad committed a blunder that created the oddest example of a company town in Arizona History. It all started when the company ordered the components of a bridge that was too short to span the gorge which had already acquired the name Canyon Diablo.

For thee years, a temporary company town at the east end of the gorge, Canyon Diablo, became a more permanent fixture. Within a short time, a stretch of desert grew to a town of 2000 residents, most of whom were either railroad workers or the merchants, gamblers, prostitutes, and others that could make money off of them.

But most of all, the town attracted outlaws. In the early year's of the town's 20 year history before it would dry up and become a ghost town, the town had six town marshals. None of them lasted longer than a month. In one case, the marshal arrived on the 10 AM stagecoach from Flagstaff, and was being prepared for burial by 3 PM the same day.

Into this town, a new mystery has appeared. Corpses have been disappearing from Boot Hill, and some of the townspeople are acting odd. The A&P Railroad is concerned enough to hire a team of hard-nosed investigators, including the Town's seventh Marshal to break up the gang causing problems in the town and discover exactly who is stealing corpses. Can you brave the real world horrors of a town where life is cheap and death cheaper to learn of the horrors haunting the Territory's most violent town, or will you join the other 35 victims on Boot Hill (including six marshals) overlooking Canyon Diablo?
