In 1858, a young woman on her honeymoon is forcibly abducted, taken across the border from Canada, and sold into slavery. Thirty-eight years later, Detective Murdoch is working on a murder case where the dead man, the owner of one of Toronto’s livery stables, was found horsewhipped and left hanging from his wrists in his tack room. His wife claims that a considerable sum of money has been stolen. Then a second man is also murdered, his body strangely tied as if he were a rebellious slave. Murdoch has to find out whether Toronto’s small “coloured” community has a vicious murderer in its midst – an investigation that puts his own life in danger.
