Once again Brigadier General Hannay is taken from the trenches of the front line to save his country on a desperate mission. This time he must find the genius behind a vast network of spies infiltrating English pacifists and conscientious objectors. Hannay finds the man only to have him evade capture at the last moment. However, this is only the beginning of a thrilling adventure which takes him back to Scotland for more exploits in the manner of The Thirty Nine Steps, to France again and on to Switzerland, pitting his wits against the mastermind behind the sinister organisation 'the wild birds'.

All his old friends are with him and our hero has to convince Bullivant, Blenkiron, Peter Pienaar, and the love of his life, Mary Lamington, that he would recognise the chameleon like villain again who must be hunted down and destroyed to avoid defeat of the Allies. The riveting tale contains some chilling descriptions of 'modern warfare'; the new weapon, gas; and comes to a climax with the brave antics of that new breed of men, the Royal Flying Corps.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mellie | 10/11/2013

    " This is one of the later books of Hannay and is the one in which he marries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Thrale | 9/21/2013

    " This third and final book more than made up for the rather tortuous second book. The last half dozen or so chapters were great, even if I did guess the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tony | 6/14/2013

    " I thought that I was going to love this, but it didn't quite live up to expectation. They were a tad wordy bck then! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 3/30/2013

    " Fantastic fun. The best of the Hannay books so far. I have read the first three. Now on the fourth. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan Thompson | 1/25/2013

    " Like all his books it was a good read. Action/early 20th Centuary "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott | 12/7/2012

    " An exciting and fast paced novel. Very much enjoyed. Certainly lived up to the legacy of the 39 Steps and Greenmantle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 10/11/2012

    " I liked this book quite a lot. I also read about John Buchan during this time. He had an interesting life. Knowing a little about him made the book even more enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandra | 10/4/2012

    " Another brilliant effort by Buchan. I am flying along with these adventures. They are so refreshing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dana | 7/26/2011

    " Richard Hannay's adventures continue around WWI espionage. This 3rd in the series is the best so far... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikki | 2/27/2011

    " Good book, but not exactly my cup of tea. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 1/21/2011

    " John Buchan was one of the first to write in the spy novel genre. These are old fashioned but still entertaining. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 9/15/2010

    " The very best of John Buchan. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ryan | 4/27/2010

    " Classic read. Despite its age, its just as thrilling today as it was nearly 100 years old. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharil | 3/10/2010

    " I enjoyed "The Thirty-Nine Steps". "Greenmantle" felt like a bit of a chore to get into. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jerry | 3/14/2009

    " I read Greenmantle, but my edition is a really spiffy cloth cover, Stodder and Houghton, 1963, I think from Britain. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathryn | 1/15/2009

    " I've only read Thirty-Nine Steps and Greenmantle, but I know the others would be great too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Douglas | 1/12/2009

    " Good stuff. This whole set is great. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve | 7/17/2008

    " Just the first few for now, but reading this on Pynchon's recommendation...
    The 39 Steps was great and fun, pretty interesting that it isn't anything like the film. Hitchcock had some fun with that! "
