What you need to know before your trail

One year ago, Caroline Johnson chose to end her life brutally: a shocking suicide planned to match that of her husband just months before. Their daughter, Anna, has struggled to come to terms with their loss ever since.

Now with a young baby of her own, Anna misses her mother more than ever and starts to ask questions about her parents’ deaths. But by digging up the past, is she putting her future in danger? Sometimes it’s safer to let things lie . . .

Travel Guide

Eastbourne, Sussex

Anna’s parents moved here when they had here and settled int o Eastbourne life from London. The properties around the area are identical: three storey Georgian houses with long back gardens and narrow outdoor passages that run from front to back between each house.

Chestnut Drive close to where she lives isn’t real, but it;s in a nice area and since it’s Christmas, there’s a feeling that the scene is particularly nice.

When Anna is targeted with messages, she’s worried bur realises that Eastbourne is a small place and she’s got strong connections here.

Beachy Head

A small unassuming British seaside town. Beachy Head is the infamous suicide spot not far from here and sadly where there is a daily patrol to try and stop those who come here to end their lives. It’s a place tinged with sadness.


The story has been inspired by the story of John Darwin who faked his own death and  moved to Panama with his wife, who had kept him hidden in the house.
