Mr. Standfast Paperback

Part of the Richard Hannay series



'A writer touched by genius' - "The New Criterion". 'Between Kipling and Fleming stands John Buchan ...the father of the modern spy thriller' - Christopher Hitchens. 'Eat your heart out, Jason Bourne' - "Evening Standard".

Recalled from active service on the Western Front, Richard Hannay is sent undercover on a crucial secret mission to find a dangerous German agent at large in Britain.

Disguised as a pacifist, Hannay travels from London to Glasgow to the Scottish Highlands and Islands in his search, which eventually ends in a spectacular climax above the battlefields of Europe.

John Buchan's inside knowledge of trench warfare and government intelligence lend a formidable realism to this superlative spy story.

This is a nail-biting classic from a master storyteller.
