Opinion Wanted

I have a literary mystery, 1955, rural Kentucky. The title is currently Whistle Pig Down. I am thinking of changing the title to Ferry to Hell, but is this title too melodramatic? Or do titles need to be that way? I would love everyone’s opinion.

Sally barges into James’s isolated cabin and begs for help. After someone kidnaps her, James tries to rescue her and discover if she killed a grocery clerk during a robbery. When she learns that he is accused of murdering a couple over a lover’s quarrel and of war crimes, she tries to clear his name and his conscience. Can they save each other?
