Detective Murdoch investigates the murder of a prostitute, Cora Devereaux, in a posh bordello. The girl was garroted and had only been working there for about six months. She was popular with the establishment's clientèle and according to the house's madame, Ettie Weston, she had to that evening remove one particularly obsessed customer, Arthur Webster, a well-known artist. The autopsy reveals that the dead woman had been drinking absinthe and shows no defensive wounds but did have old scarring from possibly having been whipped. In addition to the artist, suspicion falls on a prominent judge who eventually admits he awoke in the dead woman's room and found her dead, but remembers nothing else. The solution to the murder is nearby, however. Written by garykmcd

However, the first mention of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches did not appear until 1901 in a recipe by Julia Davis published in "Boston Cooking-School Magazine of Culinary Science and Domestic Economics" See more »


Detective William Murdoch: [Trying to find out which flammables were used in making the bomb] I'll have to send it to the university. I would do it myself, but I don't have a centrifuge.
Inspector Thomas Brackenreid: [Defensively as he obviously doesn't know the meaning of the word] Oh, that's a shame!
