Geoffrey O’Brien’s The Fall of the House of Walworth is an L.A. Times summer reading pick; “O’Brien turns his acute eye onto a scandalous story of the 1870s, an act of patricide that destroyed a prominent family after the Civil War.” Booklist calls it a ” darkly mesmerizing true-crime tale.” A few libraries are showing holds. For those that don’t have holds, this sounds like a good readers advisory choice.
