Acting Detective William Murdoch, of Toronto's Number Four Station, must try to clear his own father of a murder change as the execution date draws near in Let Loose the Dogs, the fourth and perhaps darkest and most complex novel in this well-received Victorian series by Canadian author Maureen Jennings (Poor Tom Is Cold, etc.). Murdoch is understandably ambivalent, given that he and his sister Susanna, recently deceased in a nunnery, fled their violent, alcoholic father 22 years earlier.
