The Complete Murdoch Mysteries CollectioneBook - 2013
The books that inspired the wildly popular TV series -- known as the Murdoch Mysteries in Canada and as The Artful Detective in the United States -- are available together for the first time in this seven-volume eBook bundle that brings the crime-ridden world of late-19th-century Toronto alive.
"If you want to step back in time . . . let Jennings be your guide. There's really none better."
-- Ottawa Citizen
From his debut in Except the Dying , where he pursued the secrets behind a young, pregnant servant girl's death through brothels and drawing rooms, to his immersion in the Dickensian world of workhouses in Vices of My Blood , and the investigation of his own dark family history in Let Loose the Dogs , Detective William Murdoch has been one of crime fiction's most fascinating and engaging protagonists. These seven riveting novels-- inspiration for the internationally popular Murdoch Mysteries television series-- blend masterful storytelling, vivid characters, and an extraordinary eye for the rich history of Victorian Toronto to create modern classics; they are must-reads for every mystery lover.
"Murdoch's warm heart makes him the right sleuth for this cold city."
-- New York Times
"Vivid . . . heartwrenching."
-- Publishers Weekly (about Under the Dragon's Tail )
"Jennings immerses her readers in the Toronto of the 1890s. The smells, sights, and sounds she describes ring as true as if she were recounting a trip she'd made there last week."
-- Quill & Quire
