-- When does the scene on the cover take place? The broken banister rail appears to indicate that this is Tony Prito being attacked by the ghost - but this scene doesn't occur in the book itself, it's only re-told by Tony after the event [pg 35/36]. This would suggest this is only the second book after Flickering Torch not to depict one of the Hardys on the cover!
