Product description


"Learned, witty and splendidly entertaining" (Kirkus)

"Pears matches the brilliance of his bestselling An Instance of the Fingerpost with this intricate historical novel... The pages will fly for most readers, who will lose themselves in the clear prose and compelling plot." (Publishers Weekly)

"Sometimes you get a novel that is purely enjoyable. Stone's Fall is such a book. The assurance and invention with which the novel is written are alike remarkable. Utterly absorbing and a rare delight" (Alan Massie The Scotsman)

"Pears is a bold storyteller with ambitions beyond the confines of genre" (Clare Clark Guardian)

Book Description

The long-awaited return of one of our greatest historical thriller writers. A book to rival his international bestseller An Instance of the Fingerpost.
