Det. Murdoch investigates the disappearance of Monique Poirier, a young French woman who was in Toronto visiting her sister Sophie. She had returned to her room at the hotel to get her camera but then just vanished into thin air. Also in town is a handsome young police Inspector from France, Marcel Guillaume, also looking for someone. They first suspect Sophie's husband, Roderick Dalewood, but photos suggest his own sexual appetites lay elsewhere. The case is further complicated when they find the body of a young woman in a steamer trunk, badly burned with acid. Murdoch has a new way of getting a photograph sent to him by wire. Insp. Brackenreid meanwhile is approached by a group of businessmen to run for city council. There is a price however for his support. Written by garykmcd

It starts with a lady named Monique going back to her room for a camera and then disappearing.

She was with her sister in a hotel and her sister's husband. She had confided in a man on the train that she felt her sister was not happy in her marriage. The French language is used in some parts of this episode.

There are different things going on in this series. Inspector Brackenreid wants to run for Alderman and he is encouraged by men who have an interest into building an underground subway. Also policeman that is French is called on to help Murdoch find out what has happened to Monique.

Monique's body is found in a trunk decaying. Her camera is later found with pictures of her sister's husband in bed with a man.

I believe Murdoch Mysteries has lot of homosexual actors. One of Murdoch episodes was disgusting when a man kisses him.

I do believe the religious mocking in these series has to do with the lack of moral content written into the series. After seeing part this episode about a homosexual relationship I lost interest and stopped watching.
