British cop and apprentice wizard Peter Grant is investigating reports of ghosts on the London Underground. Ghosts, normally unseen by the less magically inclined, seem to be clustering on certain lines and making themselves noticed. Peter not only has to track down these apparitions with the help of a colleague from the transit police, but he also needs to figure out what they want before their behavior escalates to violence. Peter brings his young cousin Abigail along for the investigation, deciding her burgeoning magical talents might come in handy, which helps to keep things light.

This is a novella in the excellent Peter Grant series. As for the books in the series it is a stand alone story with some of the major characters appearing. It is easier to understand if you have read the previous novels but if not, it is still a great story. Peter, a very junior member of "the Folly", the department of the London Metropolitan Police tasked with ensuring that magic users, ghosts, local deities etc do not break the law, (well junior member in that there is only one other member and he is both old and powerful) carries out various police tasks the main thread of which are triggered by a series of ghosts accosting people on the commuter trains to warn them of a trapped princess. Peter liaises with various other police groups while trying to balance the promise he previously made to his frighteningly precocious young cousin Abigail that he would teach her magic if she passed her O levels in Latin with his apprentice obligations to his "not master", gaffer.
