Perhaps more than any other book The Thirty-Nine Steps has set the pattern for the story of the chase for a wanted man. And. of the many writers who have attempted this kind of thing since Buchan. only a very few. like Graham Greene. have managed to sustain the tension in the same way. The story’s extended chase scene inspired Alfred Hitchcock’s movie of the same name.The Thirty-Nine Steps. Buchan’s best-known thriller. introduces his most enduring hero. Richard Hannay-who. despite claiming to be an „ordinary fellow.” is caught up in a dangerous race against a plot to devastate the British war effort.It begins calmly enough with a rather boring trip to London. Returning to his flat. Richard is shocked to find his neighbor dead on the floor with a knife in his back. Near the deceased is a small black notebook containing cryptic notes about the „thirty-nine steps” and a black stone. As the situation escalates. Hannay is mistaken for a secret agent by the police. Now he must run for his life across the Scottish highlands. thinking his way through narrow escapes while trying to decode the thirty-nine steps.With wit and flair. this old-fashioned roller coaster ride offers soaring suspense with a comic touch.
