Plot

After Chief Crosby caught Luke texting his girlfriend, he decided to send him and the player to a drilling site as someone had reported a fight there. However, they discovered the body of photographer Samad Baquir, impaled on a cactus. Beatriz confirmed that he had died by the cacti pricks piercing his organs and heart. The team first suspected a worker at the oil well, Xavior Devin, who had a grudge against the victim trespassing into the site as the victim’s camera was distracting him and the other workers. They also added traveler Oxin Gore who claimed that Samad was nothing else but a egocentric and selfish man as well as former miner Alan Lynton who threatened the victim with his shotgun after having caught him lurking around the mine he used to work in.

Later, the duo heard that the victim’s vehicle had been found on the side of the road. There, they found clues to add well-known motorcycle racer Kit Ryker as the victim modified pictures of him to ruin his reputation, causing Kit to get back at Samad by breaking his camera. They also suspected journalist Julian Langdon who was more than happy to hear of the death of his former co-worker who treated him like a stupid child. Later in the offices, Luke and the player heard that someone was pouring gasoline on the victim’s jeep. After stopping Julian from becoming an arsonist, the team found enough evidence to arrest Alan for the murder.

The old man first tried to deny his involvement in the murder, but he quickly snapped and claimed that who he killed wasn’t a man. When Luke asked what he was talking about, Alan exclaimed that no man could be so egocentric, selfish and would want to find his gold. He continued to explain that Samad wanted to steal his precious gold from the mine the team was investigating in. When the detective told him that it was a coal mine, the old man drew his shotgun, causing Luke to shoot him in the arm. In court, Yasmine Marrakchi sentenced the former miner to life in Berrini’s asylum for his crimes and to be treated for his clear insanity.

After the trial, Luke asked the player if they could come with him to the coal mine as he was confused about Alan's beliefs that it was gold. At the mine, the duo found a half-buried wooden box that Luke had tripped over. After unlocking it, they were surprised to find an old diary inside. After sending it to Raj, the profiler explained to them that if they would trust the book, a legend foretold that some kind of treasure was hidden in the golden city they learned about previously that could grant intelligence and power, on which Luke laughed over how ridiculous it sounded.

Meanwhile, Oxin came to the station asking for help. Soon the traveler explained that he had lost his map of the district near the drilling site and that the workers weren’t letting him search the site for the map. With Astrid, the player found pieces of paper that were revealed to be Oxin’s lost map. The duo then gave it back to him after he had thanked them more than enough.

At the end of the case, Chief Crosby glared at Luke for his commentary on the treasure before he told them that they needed to find out more about the treasure. He also said that they would need to keep an eye on the people exploring it while avoiding the locals who wanted them gone from the district. That was when Astrid reported a murder on the highway.
