1920s England: No-one who had ever met Flora Jacobs would describe her as scandalous, but when the young socialite mysteriously disappeared on a trip up north with a man she had only recently met, intrigue was sure to follow. What on the surface appears to be an ‘innocent elopement’ will lead the investigators to a quiet Yorkshire village with a big secret to unearth.

Although set in the 1920s, the scenario can easily be moved to gaslight or modern day with the tweak of a couples of dates. Suggestions on how to do this are provided in the appendix of this scenario.
