Flag from en


In his most dazzling and brilliant novel since AN INSTANCE OF THE FINGERPOST, Iain Pears tells the story of John Stone, financier and armaments manufacturer, a man so wealthy that in the years before World War One he was able to manipulate markets, industries and indeed whole countries and continents. A panoramic novel with a riveting mystery at its heart, STONE'S FALL is a quest to discover how and why John Stone dies, falling out of a window at his London home, chronologically going backwards from London in 1909, to Paris in 1890, and finally Venice in 1867.
