What's the Mystery Here?
A small town in the southern United States. A one-diner town, and this is the diner. It's the place where everyone gathers, and today that means:-
The chef and owner of the diner, TJ who is famous for his Killer Chili;
Miss Dolly the town's best-kept lady;
The local preacher, Pastor Terry;
Grumpy waitress, MaryAnn;
And the sweet, innocent Janie the diner's other waitress;
A drifter named Zeb who TJ has employed as a dishwasher;
And finally, there's the despotic Sheriff Lloyd who is hated by everyone.
Even Mean Ole Henry, the diner's resident cat hates Sheriff Lloyd. Indeed, he's so notorious that the FBI has been taking an interest in his activities - something that comes in handy when there's a murder...
