    Iain Pears tells the story of John Stone, financier and arms dealer, a man so wealthy that in the years before World War One he was able to manipulate markets, industries, and indeed entire 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.

    Marilyn Scher says: "Iain Pears-Always more than you bargained for."

    Overall

    Still catching my breath after finishing Stone's Fall last night. Pears' prose flows in fine style loaded with fascinating settings, characters and situations. Placed amidst the economic, military/industrial turmoil of Europe before World War I, the novelist's flights of fiction arise from a historical foundation with aspects readers in 2009 may recognize as quite contemporary.
    Listening to the excellent actors who recorded this book is a treat. I hope someone will record The Dream of Scipio, Iain Pears' masterpiece novel of western civilization and ethical challenges.
