It was March of 1902. A little over a year since Winston Churchill made his maiden speech. A few months since Theodore Roosevelt renamed the executive mansion as the white house. Three months since the first Nobel prize in physics was awarded to Wilhelm Rontgen for his invention of the x-ray. And, just around the time when many Canadian soldiers were returning from fighting in the Boer war. But James Quirk wasn't one of those returning soldiers.
James Quirk was a healthy, somewhat wealthy, good looking man. Then he was murdered! His head was removed by the coroner at the request of the leading detective and was not buried with his body, why?
