|Ran, Conan and Kogoro with the Detective Kids arrive at an inn. There they meet another tourist group and a very rude man (who eventually leaves to another inn). During dinner the owner gets angry reading an article which says the inn is haunted and that's why it's popular. Later, the kids leave to search for the ghost, not before Conan sees the owner's wife sobbing outside. They join the townspeople patrolling, when Ayumi sees a girl calling her and is lost. Everyone searches for her and she's found unconscious beside a tree. When she says that she saw a girl, the inn landlady tells her that the girl's name is Mami, who believed in Eiji's innocence. But the inn owner says that's impossible since they dies 10 years ago! He angrily denies Eiji being his son and says they are all putting up a show. The Detective Kids decide to investigate. They find out the Mami's home, but its abandoned. They also find out from Agasa that Eiji committed suicide, before which he was suspected for jewellery theft, due to fingerprints left at the scene of crime. Ayumi takes them to the place she saw Mami disappearing, and they find a piece of new cloth there. At night, they catch a person at the top of the inn and when the owner tries to stop him from escaping, he plunges him with a knife and escapes. Just then they hear Ran's scream, and they see Mami's ghost near the knife.|

|The owner is taken to the hospital. Kogoro is requested to investigate the case. Even as Kogoro starts his wronog deductions, the kids continue investigating, and find that the road where the knife was leads to an end, meaning that the criminal is someone from the village or one of the tourists. The next day, the kids start searching for whatever the criminal was searching for in the attic. Ai observes that they can clearly see the place where the owner, Nagakura, was attacked last night, which means that even the owner could see who was in the attic. Conan rushes to the place and finds a lacquer tree there, which was the reason the owner fainted. They see the rude tourist, Kawaji, being surrounded by villagers and Ai tells them that Nagakura was part of a group that was for registering the village as a World Heritage (but there was also another group against it). Kawaji is a World Heritage inspector who came to determine whether the village should be a World Heritage, but he accepted bribes from various villages and also asked some from Nagakura. Kawaji is arrested as a suspect since his house was right where Nagakura had passed out. The kids come to know from the inspector that the Nagakura and the Otozawa's houses were exchanged, and that their places were exchanged. Conan searches the attic of the abandoned house and finds the stolen jewels. That night, the kids then hide in the attic and wait for the criminal. The criminal turns out to be Sakaki, the missing jewel appriser. He had forced Eiji, who was in debt, to help him in the robbery and had also killed the guard and later Eiji, to hide his own crime.|

|Kogoro takes Conan to a restaurant, where the waitress called Azusa, asks for his help to find the owner of a lost cell phone. She tells them that a person called the cell three times, but she feels that it might not be the cell's owner that's calling, since, the first time, he said "Sorry, must be wrong number", the second time "Huh, did you hear anything ring right now?" and the third time, with a completely different tone, "Hey, you're his girl, right? Give back the phone or I'll kill you!". After this, scared, she switched the phone off but she hasn't received any calls after switching it on again. Conan finds that the phone doesn't connect. Azusa tells him that the customer wore glasses, was chubby, with a side-parted hair, and kept playing games on the phone. The first call came after an hour after he left, soon the second one, and the third 30 mins after that. They find that the names and the numbers in the contact list seem to be fake and weird things about them: some names have a dot after them and some don't; the first names are in katana and the surnames in kanji; the numbers are 10 digits starting with 1. She also tells them the phone was left under a seat, with the antenna still out, and she found it only because it rang. The serial number sticker on the phone is torn off. Also, the customer asked for many food items, which amounted to exactly 3000 yen and asked for a receipt without giving his name. Inspector Yumi comes asking for Kogoro's help, saying the person with the receipt had died the day before in an accident. She also tells them that the man was hit by the truck, which was neither speeding, nor had a drunk driver, when he was crossing the street, hurrying to a store named Poirot. He also carried a lot of receipts on him from stores all around. Conan suggests finding the name and address of the victim and the id of the caller from the telephone company.|

|From the phone company, they confirm the three calls, but they are made from different places. The person's name and address were only asked during the last call, when they heard a loud sound and the call was abruptly cut off. Yumi first calls Beiko station where they are informed of a dangerous looking man in a long coat, who was hesistating to make the call and the loud noise may be the announcements. Yumi then calls the Apollo sports shop, where a crew-cut man whose phone's battery was dead came, and the loud noise might have been the construction noise from outside. The third place is Colombo restaurent, where a regular customer in sunglasses made a call after borrowing change. Here the loud noise turns out to be from the campaign car which is everywhere now-a-days. Yumi asks him to call back when the customer comes back. Conan finds out that most of the numbers are very close to each other, suggesting they might be neighbours. Also the numbers from 1032 to 1100 are missing. Azusa suggests they might infer dates from Oct to Nov. Conan suggests that the phone was placed in a way that would be easy to find it once it rings, which suggests that it was meant to be exchanged with someone. He suggests that the victim might have gotten the place wrong, since he was new to the area, hence he was hurrying. They deduce that the victim might have gotten the store's name wrong, since they were based on detectives. They come to Colombo, and upon asking the owner, they find that customer was asking the owner if he found a lost phone. Conan tranquilizes Kogoro and reveals the truth.|
