Mad Aboot Murdoch


Unbeknownst to most (including the artful detective himself) William Murdoch made a sojourn to Southern California at the turn of the century to solve a multi-city mystery involving some pesky ghosts. Unfortunately, he was called back home to Toronto before he had a chance to get to the bottom of the situation.

The cold case has come to the attention of the Tea & Sympathy Investigative Agency who intend to finish what Detective Murdoch started, by reopening the case that will take us from old towne Orange to Heritage Square San Diego.
