It's 1956, and Lee Plunkett has taken over the family business as a private investigator in Connecticut. When murder intrudes on a group of ghost seekers, Lee agrees to take on the case …despite his reluctance to follow in his father's footsteps. At the urging of his perpetual fiancée Audrey, he enlists the help of Mr. O'Nelligan, a scholarly Irishman with a penchant for quoting Celtic bards and Shakespeare – and a keen eye for solving mysteries. The duo is drawn into a murder investigation involving the “Spectricator," a machine designed to communicate with the dead. Soon, Plunkett and O'Nelligan are knee-deep in a suspect pool that includes a surly medium, a former speakeasy queen, a mysterious Spanish widow, and a slew of eccentric servants. The Séance Society is a fresh take on the traditional whodunit.
