Pepper's Ghost is the sixth studio album by the English progressive rock band Arena. It was issued in 2005 by Inside Out Music.[2]

The album tells the story of five heroes in 19th century London, who fight crime and, ultimately, defeat a demon. They are an exorcist, a ninja, a scientist who travels through time, a count and a cowboy with Indian ways. The story is told in the booklet that accompanies it, through a small comic.
