Ageing mobster Paul Kirstner hires Jeff to act as bodyguard to his daughter. He is followed into town by the vengeful ghost of Bugsy Spanio, another gangster, whom he killed years earlier and now wants revenge. Bugsy leans on Marty, threatening to harm Jeannie if he does not help him. However, Marty overcomes Bugsy in a fight and Kirstner is eventually disposed of by an earthly rival, allowing Bugsy to rest in peace.[2]
