November 2012 Book of the Month  A thrilling ghost story set in a boarding school situated right in the heart of Salisbury Cathedral. Eleven year old Jon Whitcroft doesn’t want to be packed off to boarding school and is sure that he won’t like it because the food will be disgusting, the teachers fierce and he will have to share a room. But he soon finds that everything he had been worrying about was as nothing to the things he had not thought to worry about. When three ghosts looking as if the blood has been sucked out of them turn up outside his dormitory, Jon really begins to worry. But his haunting adventure is fun, too and his brush with history brings the past to life.

Ghost Knight Synopsis

Eleven-year-old Jon Whitcroft never expected to enjoy boarding school. He never expected to be confronted by a pack of vengeful ghosts either. And then he meets Ella, a quirky new friend with a taste for adventure... Together, Jon and Ella must work to uncover the secrets of a centuries-old murder, while being haunted by ghosts intent on revenge. So when Jon summons the ghost of the late knight Longspee for his protection, there's just one question - can Longspee really be trusted?
