A police constable, and friend of William Murdoch, by the name of Oliver Wicken is found dead in a basement, seemingly from suicide. Wicken was shot in the head by his own gun, and a note was left by his side. The evidence seems compelling.

However, new evidence being brough to light leads Murdoch to believe that not everything is as it seems. Oliver Wicken's death may not have been a suicide, but if that's the case, then who killed him? And why?
