Publisher Comments:

In this fast-paced spy thriller, a self-described "ordinary fellow" stumbles upon a plot involving not only espionage and murder but also the future of Britain itself. Richard Hannay arrives in London on the eve of World War I, where he encounters an American agent seeking help in preventing a political assassination.

Before long, Hannay finds himself in possession of a little black book that holds the key to the conspiracy — and on the run from both the police and members of a mysterious organization that will stop at nothing to keep their secrets hidden.

Synopsis:

This is the first of five novels in John Buchan's Greenmantle series, featuring the adventures of the stalwart and resourceful Richard Hannay. Originally published in 1915, it also served as the basis for several movies and plays, including Alfred Hitchcock's classic cinematic adaptation.

Synopsis:

A young Scot stumbles upon a plot involving espionage, murder, and the future of Britain itself. This classic of suspense served as the basis for one of Hitchcock's most famous films.

This is an amazing mystery book! It takes place just before WWI and i about a man that finds out a terrible secret that will make WWI
be a disaster. He must run for his life and hide out in the country. Along the way, he meets great characters, such as a lazy farmer, a politician trying to get elected, and a creepy owl-eyed enemy. Each chapter has a new adventure to be encountered, and there are small bits of comedy that make it an excellent story. Anyone that likes classic adventure or mystery will love this intriguing story. It's a short read, but packed with adventure, and I couldn't put it down. I recommend it to everyone!
