For many years in England, Ghosts have infected the city. Agencies have sprung up in order to contain the spirits and protect the people of London. One problem is adolescents are the only ones who can sense, see, or hear the apparitions. Lucy Carlyle is one of the gifted agents who has just gotten a job at the smallest agency, Lockwood and Co. On one of their first cases, Anthony and Lucy find a mysterious ghost and her remains that have been hidden for 50 years. This case ends with a house burned down and the agency in debt. The next case Lockwood & Co. takes has multiple ghost and paranormal activity. This job could end up being their last. JA
