Taking part in an archaeological excavation in Taiwan, Emma Wu enlists help from her brother Garfield when people began disappearing mysteriously in the course of the excavation. With the excavation on hold as a result of the disappearances, coupled with the disappearance of a corpse that was supposed to be buried in the nearby village, the siblings investigate and soon find themselves on a collision course with a dangerous supernatural cult.

June 1979 - Riddle of the Empty House in Pringle Creek

Based on the Murdoch Mysteries Season 2 finale Anything You Can Do...with elements from the Sherlock Holmes story Adventure in the Empty House.

A couple weeks after Garfield started his first full-time job as a licensed professional engineer, a chance hanging out with colleagues at Billings Bridge one Saturday morning led him to reunite with someone he haven't spoken much to after graduating from Carleton University - Rebecca Lee, who recently started her new job at an architectural firm. The duo will later cross paths again when Garfield travels to Cornwall for a conference, only to later come upon a mystery when a former OPP police inspector was found dead in a room with a broken window in his home - a mystery that becomes a murder investigation and leads to something related to Garfield and Rebecca's respective feelings deep down in their hearts.

Dimension Seven:

Consists of real-world events in a darker and realistic setting, though there are some slight differences compared to real life.

Oct. 1968 - A Study in a Missing Will

Dimension Seven version of Garfield and the Secret of the School Library and origin story for Garfield Wu in this continuity.

Oct. 1971 - The Deceptive Game

Professor James "Jim" Moriarty, Jr.: The professor of Garfield's calculus course whose namesake is the infamous Napoleon of Crime, James Moriarty, Sr., who is also his paternal granduncle. Appears laid-back and calm, though he may be hiding something.

Functions as a backdoor pilot to The Lee Kîm-Fai Chronicles (李金輝之記事).

Senior Inspector Lee Kîm-Fai (李金輝): The renegade CID commander of the Shau-Kai Wan Division with a reputation for being arrogant and reckless. Not a lot of CID men wanted to work under his command, as they find him difficult to work with. Also speaks Chiuchow (潮州話) fluently.

Locations:

Note: All real-life locations mentioned in my stories are fictionalized

Dimension Four:

In terms for world affairs and boundaries, the world of Dimension Four is going to be semi-anachronistic:

Examples of defunct monarchies that are still active in the present-day: The German Empire, Austria-Hungary, Italy, Greece, the Ottoman Empire, Korea, Ethiopia, Laos, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iran, all in the form of stable, democratic parliamentary constitutional monarchies The Indian subcontinent is encompassed by a federal parliamentary republic in the form of the Indian Union (Itself divided into three constituent countries) The pre-1949 Republic of China (Excluding Mongolia and Taiwan) is still in control of the mainland, aside from being a stable, semi-presidential republic with the status as the world's largest democracy and largest social-welfare state The United Kingdom only consists of England, Scotland and Wales as of 1921, with the fictionalized Republic of Ireland (Who's still a member of the Commonwealth of Nations) encompassing both real-life Ireland and Northern Ireland

In terms for passenger rail in Canada, the worlds of Dimensions One and Four are semi-anachronistic:

Examples of defunct rail services that are still active in the present-day: The Super Continental and the Atlantic The Confederation Bridge linking Prince Edward Island to New Brunswick is a road and rail bridge, with daily VIA Rail service linking Charlottetown, PEI, with the New Brunswick cities of Moncton, Fredericton and Saint John There are two rail links to Newfoundland: One through a rail bridge from Labrador and Quebec and the other through a rail tunnel from Sydney, Nova Scotia. Both rail links terminate at St. John's The VIA Rail-operated Canadian continues to use its 1950s and 1960s CP Rail routings, connecting Vancouver on the west end with Toronto or Ottawa and Montreal on the east end VIA Rail continues to serve Ottawa Union Station, though the real-life Ottawa Railway Station at Tremblay that opened in 1966 in real life is opened in 1977 as a temporary station while Ottawa Union Station in downtown undergoes renovations with the tracks electrified and twinned and moved to underground tunnels in the downtown core. Following the reopening of Ottawa Union Station in 1983, the temporary station at Tremblay is renamed as Ottawa East Station LRC is the name of VIA Rail's high speed rail service adapted from the Bombardier LRC trainset that entered service in 1982, though unlike its real-life counterpart, the LRC is electric-powered and is of push-pull formation (With later models shifting towards electric multiple unit) MOOSE Rail is the primary operator of commuter and regional rail in the Ottawa-Hull region, having had taken over operations from VIA Rail, CP Rail and CN Rail in the 1990s All rail lines in the Ottawa-Hull region that were torn down since the 1950s and 1960s in real life are still in use today, aside from minor adjustments in the routings if applicable Montreal's Windsor Station is still active as a railway station, therefore the Lucien-L'Allier Station is merely for use by the Montreal Metro with the RTM station of the same name not existing. That being said, the CP Rail tracks linked to Windsor Station are now underground with the railway station linked to Bell Centre and Lucien-L'Allier Station In addition, Windsor Station in Montreal still functions as the headquarters of CP Rail with Canadian Airlines having offices in the station (Due to CP Rail owning a majority stake in the airline in 1997), in addition to trains arriving from Ottawa and Toronto not continuing to Quebec City terminating at the station
