Enid Blyton was catnip to me when I was a child – I have precise memories of our copy of The Magic Faraway Tree in its shiny pea-green cover. Of all her books, though, Smuggler’s Top was the one.

Spot the eight-year-old who loved malign forces at work in darkness… Small wonder I grew up to write suspense; this helped plant the seed.
