Their wagon train is attacked by bandits, Bill is knocked out and his father killed. When he cones to, he finds a clue to the raiders' identity - a key to Room 5 in the Swiftwater Hotel, Kansas. He arrives in Swiftwater and finds the townspeople sharply divided between Union and Confederate factions, with both sides being raided by a band claiming to be working for the Southern cause. At the hotel, Bill meets boyhood friend Wayne Calvert, lawyer Quentin Morrell and Otis Ellis, the hotel proprietor. He learns that Room 5 belongs to Morrell, and is caught searching it by Morrell, who is in love with Bill's former fiancée Ann Calvert, but talks his way out of the predicament.
