The Thirty-Nine Steps

by John Buchan

I found this a brisker read than Leah. Richard Hannay is an Englishman who has made his pile in South Africa, and returned to England. He is very soon bored to tears and considering returning to South Africa, when he finds himself caught up in events that will culminate in WWI. He finds himself dashing across England, pursued by both the authorities who suspect him of murder, and the German agents whose plans he has stumbled upon.

There are two more Richard Hannay novels besides the ones available here - _The Three Hostages_ and _The Island of Sheep_ - available at Project Gutenberg Australia.

Author of the Day

Alexander McNabb
When Alexander McNabb stopped smoking, he had to find something constructive to do with his hands - so he started writing. His debut novel Olives - A Violent Romance, sparked a lot of controversy in the Middle East because of his use of common family names and because it contained themes such as drinking alcohol, sex before marriage etc. So he followed it with Beirut, in which there’s booze aplenty, sex, gambling, murder, violence and general mayhem. As our Author of the Day, McNabb chats about his love for the Middle East, why his books always deal with politics, democratic values and religion and reveals what music he listens to while writing.
