About the Book

When Anthony Lammas, Kirk minister and Professor of Logic at St Andrews University, sets off for business in London, little does he realise that he will soon be entangled in a web of conspiracy. But Anthony is no ordinary professor. 

Set during the Napoleonic Wars, The Free Fishers is classic Buchan – a fast-paced tale of treason and espionage.

With an introduction by Douglas Hurd.

This edition is authorised by the John Buchan Society.
