What you need to know before your trail

She is a Lady Detective, who spends her time solving mysteries and unveiling scandals in the bustling seaside town of Hastings and St Leonards, a popular spot for the Victorian middle classes.

But when the body of a local woman is found on the beach, Violet’s efforts to investigate are blocked at every turn.

Is that because, as a woman, she can’t possibly be allowed to think or act for herself? Or is it because someone sinister has Violet in their sights?

Travel Guide

Hastings/St Leonards

St Leonards-on-Sea/Hastings is a town and seaside resort in  Sussex, England.

You can see what it would have looked like in Victorian times –  its still a place of elegant houses. There’s a central public garden, a hotel, an archery, assembly rooms and a church.

It’s very quaint in places and a typical seaside town so you can imagine the Victorians walking with their parasols and dipping their toes in the sea.
