Waterstones Says

One of the great spy thrillers of the twentieth century and a benchmark for much of what came after, Buchan’s breakneck dash up the British Isles takes in mistaken identity, fifth columnists and deliciously obscure code words. Comfortingly old fashioned yet still tremendously exciting, The Thirty Nine Steps is the perfect ripping yarn to curl up in an armchair with.

Richard Hannay has just returned to England after years in South Africa and is thoroughly bored with his life in London. But then a murder is committed in his flat, just days after a chance encounter with an American who had told him about an assassination plot which could have dire international consequences. An obvious suspect for the police and an easy target for the killers, Hannay goes on the run in his native Scotland where he will need all his courage and ingenuity to stay one step ahead of his pursuers.

“Would you like some action with your tea sir?”

Went for a quick caper and it was indeed very quick. The ending seemed to have been wrapped up in less than 2 pages. All in all it was a very stiff upper lip affair where even the baddies are polite.
