A couple of years later, we moved to Spokane, Washington, where I fell in love with the local history. Fast track to now…

It’s 1901 and Archie Prescot has traveled across the country to Spokane, Washington to design the clock tower for the new Great Northern Railroad Depot. When his talent for creating unique clock chimes connects him with a local patroness, he is thrilled, until she is found beheaded in the workshop of his new colleagues. Her grand home on the South Hill provides ample suspects, as Archie works with his lodgers, Detective Carew and his twin brother, to prove his fellow inventor and himself innocent of the crime. While on the hunt for the murderer, romance crops up when a young lady crosses his path with a mysterious past of her own. Six intersecting storylines create a cohesive look at a convoluted murder that will require all points of view to discover the truth in The Butcher, the Baker, the Candlestick Taker.(less)
