About the Book
Richard Hannay is the star of John Buchan’s original spy thriller, The Thirty-Nine Steps. Spanning five novels and crossing paths with many of Buchan’s other characters, Hannay has stood the test of time. Towards the end of John Buchan’s last novel Sick Heart River, Edward Leithen reflects that, with the outbreak of a second world war, all his companions of old will be called to action once more.
In Robert J. Harris’s critically acclaimed tributes The Thirty-One Kings and Castle Macnab, the tales of their adventures is finally told. From evading German spies on the street of wartime Paris to the rescuing an unlikely prisoner among the castles of the Scottish Highlands, Richard Hannay returns with a bang in these exciting, page-turning adventures.
A perfect fit for both existing fans of John Buchan and first-time readers.
