Conan (aka Jimmy Kudo), Rachel, and her father Mr. Moore are on a train to visit some friends. A passenger is killed by what is suspected to be criminal, and everyone seems to be in a panic. As the case progresses, Conan realizes it is just like an unpublished story his father had written before. He desperately tries to guess what happened (the story was stolen before it was finished) before it's too late. He meets a mysterious woman on the train... who's actually his mother. He asks her about what happened in the story, if a young guy with glasses in it. She answers "Yeah, that's right! A snotty wannabe detective! He gets carried away... and is killed by the murderer in the middle of he story."The thing is, that's just like him. He has glasses, and is in reality a detective that can't prove his theory on how the murderer... did the murder. Will he be able to prove the case before something happens to him?
