What you need to know before your trail

After a scandal forces DI Kelly Porter out of the Met, she returns to her home turf in the Lake District. Crimes in the Cumbrian constabulary tend to be of the minor sort, but Kelly begins work on a cold case that shocked the local community – the abduction and brutal murder of ten-year-old Lottie Davies.

Meanwhile, Kelly is also investigating two seemingly straightforward crimes: a case involving an illegal immigrant, and a robbery following the death of local businessman Colin Day. But evidence comes to light that reveals a web of criminal activity beyond anything Kelly imagined. Behind the veneer of sleepy, touristy towns lies a dark and dangerous underworld. As Kelly threatens to expose those with much to lose, she risks paying the ultimate price to get to the truth…

Travel Guide

Cumbria and the Lakes

Sounds nice doesn’t it? Kate’s new stomping ground is the lakes which is a far cry as well as being a far distance from the big smoke.


Patterdale for example is  a place she has to go to to investigate an abandoned baby. Not the kind of case you get in London. The area is nice for one:

The area was one of her favourite places to hike: off the beaten track and not chokingly stuffed with tourist like the southern fells. From Patterdale, the whole Helvellyn range was accessible, and she could bag all the Wainwrights between Clough Head and St Sunday Crag in one day.

Kirkstone Pass

“She’d forgotten how the tiny inn at the top was hemmed in by rock and cloud in all directions The isolated pub had been going in some form for five centuries, and a few walkers could be seen on the hills surrounding it.”
