An ensemble cast, Spade follows multiple interlinking stories and narratives. Jeremy Crider is an aspiring actor in the city of Hardan, with no money or contacts, when the hardships of the trade take their toll, he accepts a job for a man named Robert Spade. However, in doing so, he finds himself diving headfirst into a bubbling criminal-underbelly he never even fully knew existed. Officer Jean Marx relocates to Hardan from Urgway (the city with the highest crime-rate of all Maharris), in hopes of finding a quieter, simpler job as he and his wife hope to start a family. As The Ashland Vulture, a notorious serial-killer, targets children and adults alike for his heinous crime, he finds himself tasked with what type of officer he wants to be.
In Spade's crash-course narrative that blends comedy and harrowing action, readers will find an enigmatic and unforgiving novel.
