As a child I loved reading mystery stories, you know, those ones with smugglers and other crimes too.
Apart from the excitement of finding out what was going to happen next, and who the guilty person was, and their capture. I was also absolutely fascinated by all the secret passageways and hidden entrances.
The ‘detectives’ in these books were often children, such and those in the ‘Famous Five’ stories. Gosh didn’t they have amazing adventures and such freedom too!!
My nearest city has secret (well old) passages underneath it, and I’d love to be able to go down there and explore. What an incredible and interesting experience that would be.
