What you need to know before your trail

Maude, her older sister, knows only that Constance abandoned the apothecary they call home, and, disguised as a boy, boarded a ship bound for the Arctic. She never returned. ‘A tragic accident’, the Admiralty called it. But Maude Horton knows something isn’t right.

When she finds Constance’s journal, it becomes clear that the truth is being buried by sinister forces. To find answers – and deliver justice for her sister – Maude must step into London’s dark underbelly, and into the path of dangerous, powerful men. The kind of men who seek their fortune in the city’s horrors, from the hangings at Newgate to the ghoulish waxworks of Madame Tussaud’s.

It is a perilous task. But Maude has dangerous skills of her own . . .

Travel Guide

Franklin’s lost expedition

Franklin’s lost expedition was a failed British voyage of Arctic exploration led by Captain Sir John Franklin that departed England, United Kingdom in 1845 aboard two ships, HMS Erebus and HMS Terror.

Their task was to explore the last unnavigated sections of the Northwest Passage in the Canadian Arctic. Disaster struck and 129 officers and men, became icebound in Victoria Strait near King William Island (Nunavut).

The survivors set out for the Canadian mainland and disappeared, presumably having perished.
