Murder is a deadly business
Set in the 1890s, the sophisticated and sly Detective William Murdoch (Peter Outerbridge ReGenesis, Lucky Number Slevin) investigates murders against the seedy backdrop of a debauched world where no one trusts the police and everyone seems sinister.
Murdoch is a principled young man whose intelligence and compassion are often at odds with his superiors and co-workers. While seemingly irrefutable evidence leads his peers down the wrong investigative paths, Murdoch s keen instinct will not allow him to dismiss causes of death so easily. Without modern-day technology to aid him and often with minimal help from witnesses, Murdoch must get to the bottom of each crime armed only with his wits and cunning and he will not rest until the murderer is brought to justice.
Considered a CSI in the 1890s, Murdoch Mysteries are gripping thrillers based on Maureen Jennings s bestselling mystery novels about a cop years ahead of his time.
