The Thirty-Nine Steps is the first and arguably the best among John Buchan’s Richard Hannay thrillers.
Chased by deadly conspirators against the country, Scudder seeks refuge at Hannay’s residence. A few days later, Scudder is found dead in the smocking room, with a dagger driven though his heart. Accused of murder, and now holding the key to Scudder’s secrets, Hannay flees to the high moors.
Once cleared by his country’s secrets, Hannay flees to the high moors. Once cleared by his country’s law, Hannay takes on the ruthless conspirators.
