A recording device made by Alexander Graham Bell helps Murdoch's investigation into a murder at a dinner honouring Helen Keller.

There is a charity event at the Windsor House Hotel, where William Murdoch and Julia Ogden live. The guest of honour is Helen Keller. The guests dine in total darkness so that they can experience what it’s like being blind, but not everyone makes it through dinner.

Detective Murdoch and Dr. Ogden encounter Ralph Fellows the hotel detective, who is rather bitter about the smaller cases he gets in comparison to the celebrated William Murdoch.
