About the book

Timeless stories of adventure and daring. Thrilling reads. Addictive page-turners. The original bestsellers, now classics in their own right. The most popular fiction down the ages brought back as limited edition collectibles in the Retro Revivals series.

When Brigadier-General Richard Hannay is recalled from his duty on the Western Front by his old spymaster, he starts out on a dangerous path to outwit a German spy and his agents. Mr Standfast follows one of Britain's top secret agents as he tracks his enemy from London to Glasgow, and finally to the Scottish Highlands, with the help of the beautiful and clever Mary Lamington.

Mr Standfast was originally published in 1919, and is the third book in the Richard Hannay series. For its pace and suspense, its changes of scenery and thrilling descriptions, Mr Standfast offers everything that has made its author so enduringly popular. A thrilling and fast-paced World War I novel, this is one of John Buchan's finest works, and reveals why he is regarded as the innovator of the espionage fiction genre.

'Between Kipling and Fleming stands John Buchan . . . the father of the modern spy thriller.' - Christopher Hitchens
