This is a darkly comic Dickensian ghost story from Blue Peter Award winner Gareth P. Jones. Sam Toop lives in a funeral parlour, blessed (or cursed) with an unusual gift. While his father buries the dead, Sam is haunted by their constant demands for attention. Trouble is afoot on the 'other side' - there is a horrible disease that is mysteriously imprisoning ghosts into empty houses in the world of the living. And Sam is caught in the middle - will he be able to bring himself to help? Gareth P. Jones has woven a wonderfully dark and funny adventure that roams the grimy streets of Victorian London.
