The Thirty-Nine Steps, Paperback

The Thirty-Nine Steps Paperback

Part of the Wordsworth Classics series



With a new Introduction by Cedric Watts, Research Professor of English, University of Sussex.

Richard Hannay finds a corpse in his flat, and becomes involved in a plot by spies to precipitate war and subvert British naval power.

The resourceful victim of a manhunt, he is pursued by both the police and the ruthless conspirators.

The Thirty-Nine Steps is a seminal 'chase' thriller, rapid and vivid.

It has been widely influential and frequently dramatised: the film directed by Alfred Hitchcock became a screen classic.

This engaging novel also provides insights into the inter-action of patriotism, fear and prejudice.
