Show Map


Albion Street, Leeds, LS1 5JS

Set in 1924, Chris Nickson's novel Modern Crimes features Lottie Armstrong, one of the first women police constables in Leeds.

Restricted to dealing with women and children, or moving on the prostitutes ("the tart patrol" the men call it), she wants to be a proper copper. Her chance comes with the disappearance of a girl from a home for unwed mothers. Finding the answers takes her from the houses of the rich to the Royal Hotel, where the city's gays and lesbians meet. Lottie's bright and has initiative - too much for a woman, some of her superiors think. The trail becomes dark and dangerous - especially for a woman in a man's world.

Note - there WILL be wine!
