The Clock Tower Ghost is one of Gene Kemp's most popular novels, continuously in print since it was first published by Faber in 1981. Addlesbury Tower is haunted by Rich King Cole, a mean old man who fell off it long ago in mysterious circumstances. Enter Amanda Phillips - a spiteful, greedy girl, much feared by her family, who is determined to claim the tower for her own territory. As Mandy and King Cole lock horns in an ever more devious battle for supremacy, neither realises how much they really have in common.
