(From the publisher):
Mr Parnham is in a quandary. Sir Bussy Woodcock has invited him to a séance and Mr Parnham is more than a little keen to keep the acquaintance going – after all, the great financier might just be his ticket to fame and fortune. But to a séance? Damned silly nonsense all this medium business! Just at the point of giving up Sir Bussy once and for all, Mr Parnham has one final change of mind and decides to go along after all. And so he does – with some very interesting results.
