1.0

As well as penning some of the most popular detective fiction, Conan Doyle also wrote thrilling adventure stories. 'Rodney Stone' is a combination of both. Nelson, Beau Brummell, Fox and King George III himself appear in a tale at the heart of which is, as one character says, "a pretty conspiracy – a criminal, an actress and a prize-fighter, all playing their parts".
