...The gang leader had visited Blackpool only once. His business had been elsewhere, Haydock or Manchester racetrack. Toni had been a child but she remembered his visit to the house. It was years later that she discovered who and what he was.
He had arrived with three men, one of them Maudie. The visit had been brief. He had left a small suitcase, which her father had locked in a safe, and collected it the next day. Her father had not attempted to look inside...
