Smalltown Deputy Nick Fisher asks CBI to investigate how Alan Foster (43) was killed despite the advanced alarm in the mansion he renovated on site while his wife Lillian remained in their San Francisco home. His hand clasps a B-button, referring to Walter Beckworth, the house's builder 80 years ago, said to haunt it since he was pushed to his death from the very same window. His granddaughter Victoria Abner sold it to Foster, unable to pay her taxes, but calls him a thief. Construction site thief Jeb Haas says he saw Lillian on the murder night. Jane finds the ghost tricks. Rumor has it the house contains a treasure. Written by KGF Vissers
