What if the Coronation Stone at Westminster—the stolen relic on which the High Kings of Scotland had been crowned for over seven hundred years—was a fake?
What if the true Stone of Destiny was still out there somewhere, hidden away by a Holy Order to protect it from English invaders?
When Doctor Johnson turns up at his friend James Boswell’s door after an absence of almost seven years, he makes Boswell an enticing proposition: to join him on a quest to recover the true Stone of Destiny.
What follows is a breathtaking journey through the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland, from Edinburgh up to the furthest reaches of the northern isles. Plunged into a dizzying world of secret societies, occult mysteries and supernatural phenomena, the two friends leave no Neolithic stone unturned in their search to uncover the truth.
Eighteenth century Scotland has never been so magical… and terrifying.
The Stone of Destiny is the second book in the Casebook of Johnson and Boswell series, and is published by Burning Chair on 31 October 2022.
