Det. Murdoch and Dr. Ogden investigate the death of Richard Hartley a member of the men's eight rowing team at the prestigious, and snobbish, King's Rowing Club. Hartley was a newly appointed member of the team, having displaced Horace Briggs, a blue collar working man who was not of the same class as the others. Murdoch learns that Hartley had recently had an argument with his coach, Hamilton Kane. To complicate matters, the Hartley's are a prestigious Toronto family with a great deal of influence. The autopsy reveals that he drowned, but had also been beaten. Using a new-fangled lie-detecting device and analyzing the content of his lungs provides Murdoch with the clues he needs to solve the case. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


When Dr Isaac Tash is taking Det. Murdoch to the spot where the rowers' hazing took place, it is learned that Det. Murdoch has known Dr Ogden for two years come March 12, a date he remembers because it was a double murder committed by a 14-year old boy of his parents (and, it is implied, the first case they worked on together).

The rowing team is hoping for a medal in "the upcoming Olympics" there were no rowing events at the 1896 Olympic Games, and only 2 Canadian athletes at the 1900 Games, neither were rowers. Also as this is the First Modern Olympics, it's doubtful that Murdoch would know anything about the OLympic tradition of gold medals. See more »
