Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
...or did he?
Detective Nathaniel Spade is known far and wide as the best PI in town, and the only one who is not operating out of the king's pocket. The land of Fabel is a vibrant world full of well known characters from history's most famous fables, nursery rhymes and fairy tales. One would imagine a world filled with bedtime stories to be a place of great cheer and tranquility, but when beloved characters as innocent as Little Miss Muff et, Old King Cole and the Ugly Duckling begin to show their true colors, it becomes apparent that all is not as it seems in the land of Fabel.
For years the great fall of Humpty Dumpty has been dismissed as an accident. It is up to Detective Spade to piece together the evidence that will illuminate Fabel's darkest shadows with the light of truth.
