There's something going bump on the Metropolitan line and Sergeant Jaget Kumar knows exactly who to call.
It's PC Peter Grant's speciality . . .
Only it's more than going 'bump'. Traumatised travellers have been reporting strange encounters on their morning commute, with strangely dressed people trying to deliver an urgent message. Stranger still, despite calling the police themselves, within a few minutes the commuters have already forgotten the encounter - making the follow up interviews rather difficult.
So with a little help from Abigail and Toby the ghost hunting dog, Peter and Jaget are heading out on a ghost hunting expedition.
Because finding the ghost and deciphering their urgent message might just be a matter of life and death.

Peter Grant has to investigate reports of ghosts on the metropolitan line, he's stymied by the fact that people forget the event shortly after it happens but there's something not right going on, his cousin is also getting caught up in the entire supernatural stuff.It's entertaining and will keep me...
This is less about BIG IMPORTANT STUFF and more about just hanging out with the characters. I thought there was an underlying silver age vibe to all of this. Very enjoyable for what it is.
