When anti-Imperialist Mark Twain is invited to speak at the Empire Club the members are anything but welcoming. In fact, someone takes a shot at him. Murdoch investigates but Inspector Brackenreid - whose application for membership in the empire Club - is under pressure to get Twain to leave town as soon as possible. When Dr. Ogden learn from Twain that his wife is dying and that he is flat broke, she invites him to stay and give paid lectures to her women's group. Murdoch meanwhile investigates Club members and anyone who may have invested in the many failed schemes Twain had proposed to them. The issue is far simpler than Murdoch could have imagined.
