Publisher's Summary

Exclusively from Audible:
A worthy sequel to The Thirty Nine Steps and the second of five instalments, Greenmantle sees the return of Richard Hannay as he is sent on a secret mission to weaken Germany's efforts during the First World War.
Accompanied by his trusty sidekicks, Pete Pienaar, John S. Blenkiron and Sandy Arbuthnot, Richard travels across war-torn Europe searching for a man with a secret. A prophet by reputation, the man possesses key information that could guarantee British victory, and he goes by the name of Greenmantle.
In this epic tale, John Buchan ignites our imagination and transports us to an unknown world full of intrigue, suspense and unexpected plot twists. From Germany to Russia and Constantinople, the detectives travel far and wide and encounter some of the greatest literary characters of our time, not least of which is Hilda Von Einem, the evil yet breathtakingly beautiful temptress.
Having been inspired by his own experiences whilst serving in the British army, John Buchan had great success with the Richard Hannay series, which was considered to have the perfect balance between a plausible yet entertaining story.
As well as a celebrated author, Buchan was also a published historian, editor, war correspondent, lawyer, government administrator, MP and director of a publishing house. Clearly an ambitious and intelligent man, his wit, imagination and acumen are easy to detect in the thrilling adventure that is Greenmantle, and we hope that it is enjoyed for many years to come.
