About the Author
What People are Saying About This
"Richard Hannay is, like his American brother Philip Marlowe, a modern knight errant. Charging through a hypocritical world, he is a seeker after truth with a boundless love of nature, a liking for simple pleasures and a hatred of pettiness and snobberies... Buchan's novels are eerily resonant with today's troubles...Hannay is a hero of all times."
"Buchan makes superb use of wild landscapes in this economical and gripping story."
