Overview

The Thirty Nine Steps keeps the reader enthralled from beginning to end. From the opening scenes in a London flat to the final conclusion in a seaside villa, the jaunty, undaunted and remarkably resourceful Richard Hannay is at the centre of the action. His flight from London leads to an incredible chase across the Scottish moors the author knew so well. Finally Hannay turns from quarry to hunter. He tracks down the German spies and, alert and perceptive to the end, foils their evil plot in the nick of time. 1. DEATH OF A SECRET AGENT. Richard Hannay, newly arrived in London from southern Africa, is already tired of life in the city. Then his American neighbour; Scudder, pushes into his flat, spins him a fantastic tale of the planned murder of the Greek Prime minister, Karolides, and appeals for his help. Hannay believes him because of the naked terror on his face and agrees to let him stay. Scudder has faked his own death in an attempt to shake off the conspirators who know that he knows too much. However, the ruse does not work. Hannay returns home to find Scudder stabbed to death and himself in a fix. He will be both the prime suspect of murder inquiry and the next target on the conspirators' list. Hannay decides to flee to the Scottish moors to escape both the police and the murderers. By chance, he discovers Scudder's notebook and takes it with him. 2. FLIGHT AND PURSUIT. Borrowing the milkman's coat as a disguise, Hannay makes it to Scotland-bound train without being caught. He decides to jump from the train between stations and vanish onto the moors. But the farmer's dog disturbs his exit and attracts attention. Then, when he is up on the moor, he spots a low-flying aeroplane searching for him. Fortunately, he meets a sympathetic innkeeper willing to put him up and eager for some excitement. While hiding, Hannay starts to decipher Scudder's coded notes. 3. THE PLOT REVEALED. Hannay finally cracks Scudder's code and is appalled to learn of Germany's war plans. Soon he is in flight again, this time stealing a car belonging to the secret agents, whom the innkeeper entangles with the police. In trying to avoid being spotted from the air, Hannay almost hits another vehicle. He swerves and crashes the car. He is rescued by Sir Harry, the other motorist. Hearing that Hannay is a colonial, Sir Henry persuades him to help out with a political speech. Hannay then tells him the truth and in return is told of Sir Walter Bullivant, Harry's powerful godfather. 4. A SKILFUL DISGUISE. Hannay leaves Sir Harry under cover of darkness and heads across the moors. But in daylight he spotted by the spies' aircraft. Fortunately, he then meets a road-mender suffering from the after–effects of a wedding celebration and offers to take his place. So successful is his impersonation that all are deceived, even Marmaduke Jopley, an old acquaintance, whose car Hannay commandeers. 5. IN THE LION'S JAWS. Hannay soon abandons Jopley's car, but the alarm has been raised. He is pursued ever more closely, until he reaches a farmhouse. Here an old gentleman takes him in – but in fact Hannay is face to face with the mastermind of the German plot. He attempts to bluff his way out, but is imprisoned in the storeroom. There he finds explosives which he uses to blast himself free. After hiding on the roof of a nearby dovecote, he escapes once more. 6. THE EXCHANGE OF SECRETS. Returning to the road- mender's cottage, Hannay collapse, exhausted by his ordeal and suffering from malaria. He is slowly nursed back to health. He then heads south, to Berkshire, where by arrangement he meets Sir Walter Bullivant of the Foreign Office, using a password to prove his identity. After dinner, Hannay tells all...

    A pleasant surprise!

    There's always a risk stepping out of ones interests and I downloaded this book from a mail-order flyer in the mail.

    Turns out it was a good move. This book is part espionage and all intrigue that takes place in the months leading toward World War I in Great Britain.

    The main character is an uninspired resident of London who wishes he knew his grander purpose to provide spark and excitement in his life. Turns out he gets that in spades when he meets up with another person in his apartment and sets off on a whirlwind adventure.

    The plot itself isn't complex but absolutely interesting as the character zips around the countryside sorting out what to do.

    I found many of the author's lines to be very funny and intelligent.

    This was a Google download so brace yourself for random characters sprinkled with love throughout this otherwise very short book. ENJOY!
