The Secret: A Treasure Hunt
It delivers thrills, perhaps danger, but often with a sense that things will work out happily in the end. I grew up in the city, but occasionally as a family we spent weekends with friends in rural Aberdeenshire. When I started to write The Last Treasure Hunt , I wanted to explore childhood friendships and shared memories using the idea of an annual hunt. And because a treasure hunt is an ever-shifting mix of teamwork and competition, I found it worked as a metaphor for adult friendships too — for that strange brew of loyalty and rivalry that characterises some of the closest friendships. At the end of the story, a significant part of the treasure is left on the island, and the way is left open for a number of sequels, though none by Stevenson himself. The ensuing search for a cargo of gold ingots stashed on Kirrin Island includes enough Gothic elements to thrill young readers: a ruined castle, hidden dungeons and an ancient shipwreck raised by a storm.
