A series of unexpected events leads our canny detectives to their newest, and most unusual case yet, but what could the case of a perilous somnambulist have to do with a string of sudden supernatural disappearances?

Something is certainly stirring in London's psychical community and our detective duo finds themselves caught in the middle of a most curious case, one that will certainly stir up far more than they had bargained for, as detective Lane finds her past catching up with her as they cross paths with the mysterious Miss X and her latest client.
But what do a missing cat, a somnambulist and the disappearance of several mediums have to do with our detectives’ latest mystery? They'll certainly get to the bottom of it as they embark on a thrilling case that unveils a rather sinister and dastardly plot that they couldn't have dreamt of.
