From Malignant House, Ma and Pa run the Malign Haunting Agency, tormenting Topside families and their homes. The problem is, Malice is the exact opposite of her unpleasant, smelly, mischievous family, and when grandad ghosts mysteriously start disappearing, including her own beloved grandad, Malice feels compelled to help. She partners up with her Uncle Vexatious, Private Investigator of Underland and outcast of the Malign family. Together, can they solve case of the missing grandad-ghosts?
