THE THIRTY-NINE STEPS
By JOHN BUCHAN
Illustrated by EDWARD ARDIZZONE with a colour frontispiece and line drawings
This is one of the most exciting adventure stories ever written and comes from the pen of that master of mystery and romance, John Buchan. His hero, Richard Hannay, becomes a Secret Service agent by mistake—at the outset. The period is just prior to the outbreak of the First World War, and Hannay, on returning to his London flat, finds his mysterious neighbour on the floor with a large knife in his back. With a dead man in his rooms Hannay could no longer complain that Britain was dull compared to his native South Africa. Unprepared, unasked, he found himself in the middle of affairs of international importance; for there was the little black notebook which belonged to the deceased with its queer little cipher notes. What did they mean? The man had apparently considered them more valuable than his own life. What was the Black Stone ?—above ail, where were the thirty-nine steps and why were they important?
Suspected of murder, Richard Hannay flies to the north. In one disguise after another he dodges about Galloway until he walks straight into the enemies' house and is captured by the master spy himself ... in the end, however, Hannay is able to keep his appointment with the Permanent Secretary to the Foreign Office, identifying the thirty-nine steps in the nick of time.
