National TV ghost-buster Jack Sinclair is killed on camera while investigating the famous New York McClellan house, site of 8 previous 'suspicious' murders. His cameraman Barry Bavetta resigned after a fight that day but has an alibi. Beckett and Esposito being skeptics, Castle mainly teams up with Ryan. The root of Sinclair's fear for the house and its very architecture prove key to discovering both another older murder and a list of present suspects, enabling to set a fitting trap.
