“When I read Iain Pears' An Instance of the Fingerpost years ago, I thought it was so brilliantly plotted, so compulsively entertaining, so utterly engrossing that I gave it to my father and said, 'This is the new Dickens.' Stone's Fall is better.”—Malcolm Gladwell
“Mr. Pears’s assured command of period history, language, lore, and attitudes is formidable.”–The Wall Street Journal
