Richard, a clerk in a Victorian counting house and pawn-shop, is in trouble. And it's nothing to do with his tender feelings for his sternly handsome employer, Mr Bloom, either. (Well, that's incidental, at least.)
It's the ghostly happenings that keep occurring wherever he goes: the fires, the poltergeist activity, the whispers in the dark...
But can a visit to a spiritualist's seance really help? (Including in dealing with Mr Bloom?)
