THE THIRTY-NINE STEPS

by John Buchan

In The Thirty-Nine Steps, a spy is murdered in Richard Hannay’s London flat. Can Hannay manage to stay one step ahead of his pursuers? 

 

Published in 1915, the story is an early example of the “man-on-the-run” adventure. It’s also a “shocker” that combines personal and political dramas.
