In Silverville, New Mexico, Max Teller has turned a ghost town into a tourist attraction, but a bank loan officer wants to buy it, a former cohort in crime arrives to blackmail him, and a thieving hand that he fires threatens him. When the Silverville Museum burns, mysterious Sheriff Keeyani appears to get word from the spirits that it was arson, but Jessica realizes he is covering standard police procedure with a show. Max is killed, and it may have been related to treasure missing from an 1898 holdup.
Did You Know?
In Night of the Coyote, Sheriff Sam Keeyani (Graham Greene) gives the definition of Anasazi, as "ancient enemies" and Jessica accepts this. In season 2 episode 11, Murder Digs Deep, Jessica uses the definition of Anasazi as 'the ancient ones," (not enemies) to determine Raymond Two Crows (Randolph Mantooth) was impersonating a native expert. The word Anasazi belongs to the Navajo language and means "the ancient ones". See more
