Stone's Fall Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
A panoramic novel with a riveting mystery at its heart, Stoneï¿¿ï¿¿s Fall is a quest to discover how and why John Stone dies, falling out of a window at his London home.
Chronologically, it goes backwards, and Stone's character deepens as the book progresses. Here is a love story and a murder mystery, set against the backdrop of the evolution of high-stakes international finance, Europe's first great age of espionage, and the start of the 20th century's arms race.

I wasted far too much time waiting for this book to get better. By page149, I gave up. Nothing of interest had happened. I’m annoyed at the lost hours of my life.
The narrator is an absolute moron. The dialogue is ridiculous. Nobody talks like that, and the constant q&a formula of every conversation is a transparent and tedious device.
I think what’s most insulting is that Iain Pears seems like he could actually be a good writer, but he just couldn’t be bothered with this book. Shame.
This novel is good, very good, superb in fact.
Ian Pears is a brilliant storyteller and this book captivates and holds the reader.
So much so that I stayed up reading this book when I should have been in the arms of Morpheus getting a bit of nocturnal oblivion, and not just the once either, it was that good.
His plot lines weave through time and draw in characters that share your head for a while and his attention to historical detail embellishes the story without smothering it.
This is really good stuff. I can but recommend it.
But it should come with a 'health warning', because if you do 'get in' to this book it could easily lead to time slipping by as you 'just read another page', regardless of the hour.
Of course you won't care, at least not until you look at the clock and realise just for just how long Ian Pears has been stealing your time.
But worth it just the same
