‘Modern Crimes is rich with outstanding, complex characters … It is a great story set on the streets of Leeds which is also one of the main characters, so vividly etched by the writer, who clearly loves the place.’ - Nick Oldham, author of the Henry Christie mysteries
 

1924: Still reeling from the effects of the Great War, life in the city of Leeds is hard: poverty is rife, work is scarce and crime is becoming more sophisticated. Bravely entering this maelstrom is one of the city’s first policewomen to walk the beat, the resourceful, inquisitive and practical WPC Lottie Armstrong. Eager to prove herself and determined to succeed, Lottie faces apathy from colleagues and the general public alike until she suddenly finds herself on the trail of a missing girl that leads to the underbelly of the city and to murder.
