Rachel then recalls meeting the man wearing the knit cap that she would later see in other cases, and that he was an FBI agent. Back to the present, Rachel checks in with Dr. Araide. One of Araide’s patients tells Richard about a haunted apartment. He, Rachel and Conan investigate and find that indeed there are ghost-like incidents: a ghost appears on the television screen, red water appears in a toilet, and a ghost’s face forms outside a window. Later on, Mitch skips school without telling anyone and is in a forest for reasons unknown. The Junior Detectives try to find him, but discover there is also a serial killer who escaped into the forest. Richard and Harley are invited to a beach town and island where they are to solve a case involving dead bodies with inscriptions beside them.

The case of the dead bodies with inscriptions next to them continues. One of the visiting girls who scuba dives is killed as well as the ship’s captain, leaving the gang stranded on an island. A threatening letter is sent to the police about an event that will happen during a Tokyo parade. It relates to a bombing crime in the past. Takaki disguised as Matsuda and the bombings causes Sato to suffer flashbacks. After reviewing video footage from Mitch and noticing something peculiar, they arrest a robber, but it turns out to be only coincidental and that the bomber is still on the loose. A riddled letter is found near one of the bombings, revealing the location of a bomb big enough to destroy a tower. Conan and Takagi find the bomb, but realize that another bomb lies in the wait, and that during the last three seconds to detonation, a hint will reveal the bomb’s location. If they wait for the hint, Conan and Takagi will die in the explosion and if they dismantle it, more people will die.
