Det. Murdoch investigates the shooting death of a New York City man on a Toronto streetcar. He was shot in the stomach but no one heard a shot. Back at the station, he's surprised to find his friend from Bristol, Anna Fulford, who has come to Toronto via New York city with her fiancé and are on their way to Niagara Falls to be married. He's vanished, however, and Anna is naturally worried. Soon after confirming that the dead man is not her fiancé, someone takes a shot at her. After making inquiries with the New York City police, Murdoch learns of a new kind of criminal organization known as the Black Hand. Insp. Brackeneid meanwhile is uncomfortable when his political backer orders him to get rid of a band of gypsies that are camping in the woods. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


Murdoch ostensibly improvises the first gun silencer using iron filings in a metal tube. in order to explain the lethal gunshot on a trolley that evidently went unheard in this circa 1899 case. The actual first practical and commercially successful noise and flash suppressor for a gun barrel was invented by Hiram Percy Maxim, the son of Maxim gun inventor Hiram Stevens Maxim, in 1902. It was named the "Maxim Silencer" when it was ultimately patented in 1909. See more »


Anna Fulford: [to Murdoch] A few months after you and I had our adventure in Bristol, I finally plucked up the courage to sail to New York. Joe was the best thing about that place. It's loud and filthy, and the people are horrible.

A man is found dead on a train. Shot at close range and nobody heard the shot. Dr Ogden finds little pieces of medal in the wound along with the bullet.

Anna a former girlfriend of Murdoch shows up at the police station. The man she is going to marry left the apartment and she has not heard from him since. They were on their way to be married in another city.

Murdoch gets the description of her boyfriend and it is similar to a man found dead on the train. She sees the body but it is not her boyfriend. Later she is called to meet someone that has something to do with her boyfriend and she is a target for a hit-man.

Brackenreid has two problems. He is encouraged and controlled by a man that is running his campaign for Alderman. He also has to deal with house thiefs that he believes are from a gypsy camp that settled on city land for awhile.

Murdock invents something that like a cylinder around a hand gun that muffles the sound of a bullet being shot. Murdoch has a name for his own invention but Officer Crabtree calls it a "silencer". Murdoch believes something like this was used to muffle the sound of the gun that killed the man on the train.

So lots of questions and answers. Inspector Brackenreid finds out who is burglarizing the houses. It is the son and friends of his rich campaign donator. His campaign manager does not want the kids arrested. Brackenreid tells them he is a cop first and does not want to be bribed by these men and they are an inch away from getting arrested. He tells them both to get lost.

Murdoch finds out he is dealing with an Italian mob who use a funeral home to send dead bodies with a false bottom in the casket for another dead body. The group comes from Sicily and is dealing with US counterfeit money.

Lots of crime, lots of answers.
