Miko is a “room launderer”, someone paid to live in a rental unit where the previous tenant has died of unnatural causes until the manager is no longer legally required to inform future tenants of the death. It’s the perfect job for antisocial Miko. Her problem however is that she can see and talk to the dead. Although Miko has no idea why she has this ability, nor any inclination to use it, spirits come to rely on her.
