In the novel The Clocks, James Waterhouse is the occupant of No. 18 Wilbraham Crescent where he lives with his sister Edith. Mr Waterhouse works as the Managing Clerk at the solicitors Gainsford & Swettenham and does not come back for lunch. He was, therefore, not present nor a potential witness to the events relating to the discovery of a dead body next door at No. 19. According to Inspector Hardcastle, Waterhouse is a managing clerk and his sister spends her spare time managing him.
