Synopsis

When Brian finds himself on an unexpected and very confusing visit to a residential property letting  agency for ghosts which is run by the mysterious Lucy, he realises he is encountering a death changing experience.  After meeting his end in his company car park, he is doomed to haunt that car park for eternity – unless Lucy can find him suitable accommodation.


He encounters the flamboyant and extroverted Eleanor.  She’s been a client of Lucy’s since 1874, so she’s got plenty of suggestions for how Brian can fill eternity with some fun. He’s on a steep learning curve in what Lucy calls “the other side”.  He learns all about dress code and why it’s not a good idea to attempt walking though solid walls. Why you don’t want to expire in a supermarket on Christmas Eve and the hazard of mediums, exorcists and poltergeists.


When Sarah, another confused new client for Lucy arrives, Brian discovers that even in the next life, you can still find a spot of romance.
