Established in the literary world as a brave, and clever young detective, Nancy Drew takes to the gaming world in the interactive games from Her Interactive. Relive all your favorite adventures while you play as Nancy Drew herself!

Set in Phoenix, Arizona the tenth installment in the game series takes us to Shadow Ranch. Planning on spending two weeks with her best friends, Bess Marvin and George Fayne, Nancy is instead met with a dilemma.

Arriving at Shadow Ranch, Nancy finds out that her hosts are temporarily unavailable and her friends are stuck at the airport. Being a good sport, Nancy agrees to help out around the ranch and at the urging of her friends, enjoy her time there. But amid horse back riding through the country and helping with chores around the ranch, Nancy finds herself knee deep in another mystery.

On her first night on the ranch, Nancy is enjoying a meal around the campfire when a phantom horse comes galloping past. Curious as always, she begins to investigate and learns of a local legend involving a outlaw from the 1800s who fell in love with the sheriff's daughter. Is the phantom horse somehow tied in with the dangerous love story, or is someone after the gold that legend says the young outlaw left behind?
