Chilling alternative London

In a world suddenly taken over by ghosts that only some Talented children can see, many Psychic Detection Agencies (essentially, who you gonna call ...Ghost Busters agencies) spring up to help with the problem. Most of these agencies are run by adults that use child operatives but the Lockwood agency is run by three children. Suddenly they get an offer they can't refuse to solve a haunting...but it turns out to involve far more than they anticipated.

The Screaming Staircase was a wonderful mashup of horror and mystery with a little humor thrown in- I enjoyed it thoroughly and can't wait to see more of the series!
