Description

The first book in the Richard Hannay series by John Buchan. Richard Hannay finds a corpse in his flat, and becomes involved in a plot by spies to precipitate war and subvert British naval power. The resourceful victim of a manhunt, he is pursued by both the police and the ruthless conspirators. The Thirty-Nine Steps is a seminal 'chase' thriller, rapid and vivid. It has been widely influential and frequently dramatised: the film directed by Alfred Hitchcock became a screen classic. This engaging novel also provides insights into the interaction of patriotism, fear and prejudice.

№ 1 in the Richard Hannay series.

This book has 252 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1916.
