In 1913, several brutal murders occurred in the small town of Canton, Kentucky. Quentin Spade, the scion of a wealthy family—intellectual, respected. artistic, reserved,—was accused of being a psychotic killer—but was he? In the early Twenty-First Century, Tiffany Gray, a college student, becomes obsessed with the century old murders and attempts to discover what really happened. The Fall of the House of Spade is a fast-paced novel which moves back and forth from past to present. It presents a story of greed, hatred, political treachery, vengeance, violence, and love, set against the decline of Canton as a center of riverboat trade and wealth.
