Detective Murdoch investigates a series of deaths in which the killer severs the victims' right thumb. The murders have all occurred in quick succession and are somehow related to the racing sheet for the 7th race at Woodbine - only there is no 7th race. There are very few clues for them to go on and Murdoch soon realizes that he has been added to the list of possible victims. Constable Crabtree meanwhile is crushed by the unexpected return of Edna's husband, who everyone thought was dead. His feelings aside, he is outraged when he realizes that the man has beaten her. When Edna's husband is found dead, all of the evidence points to Crabtree as the killer. Written by garykmcd

[first lines]
Detective William Murdoch: Anything of use, Henry?
Constable Henry Higgins: Well, I didn't see much, sir. The man who ran away was of medium build. Long black coats, but... I didn't see his face. Sir, It looks like his throat's been slit.
Detective William Murdoch: If it had, there'd be significantly more blood; I suspect we'll find he's been garotted.
Constable Henry Higgins: That's a new one for me, sir.
Detective William Murdoch: [drops an item from a small bag into his hand] Good God!
Constable Henry Higgins: What is it, sir?
Detective William Murdoch: It appears to be a human thumb.
