Det. Murdoch investigates a series of deaths among members of a Toronto military regiment. All were in the same squad under the command of British Maj. Gregory Bole, on loan to train them in a new kind of warfare using what's called kommando tactics. When Murdoch learns that the men had signed a tontine agreement where the last man living would inherit all of the others investments, he thinks he's identified the killer, Matthew Larson who resigned from the regiment a few months before. It's not that simple however and when Murdoch learns that others in the squad are all hospitalized with a mysterious disease, he has to look to a training assignment they undertook in South Africa earlier in the year.

Inspector Thomas Brackenreid: [about going to investigate a murder on an army base] Just mind that you stand your ground.
Detective William Murdoch: I'm sorry, sir.
Inspector Thomas Brackenreid: Well, in my experience the military takes care of its own. They won't enjoy the constabulary lookin' into their business.
Detective William Murdoch: I'll proceed with respect and authority of law.

British and Canadian soldiers
1 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Soldiers start dying and they seem to be all in the same regiment.

Many of them had been training in Africa together. Military heads are trying to take over and take away Murdoch's authority.

The new coroner is in place of Dr Julia Ogden and he is not as smart as Dr Ogden. Murdoch goes to him to finds out the cause of death of these soldiers. Many of them had some kind of insurance agreement together called "tontine" where whoever is the last ones to survive inherits the money.

Many of the soldiers are sick and the coroner and military say it from bites of a bug in Africa. The coroner says those problems should be over in 3 weeks but here it is months later and they are still sick.

The military doctor has a lab and it was broken into. It comes out that the soldiers that died had kidney damage and that the doctor was experimenting with methamphetamine on them.

It also comes out that the soldiers had killed many innocent people in Africa and the commander in charge tells the soldiers after the killing who they killed and they find out they were ordered to kill non-military people and children.

So there are consequences for lying and also medical experimentation on soldiers.

Lots of military secrets.
