Product description

Review

A little bit of James Bond, a smattering of Indiana Jones, and perhaps even a bit of Buckaroo Bonzai--clever, well-plotted, and big fun.

The plot whips along, embellished by dogfights, perilous car journeys, personal vendettas, and plenty of derring-do--plus a whiff of enjoyable parody to lend an edge. I was beguiled.

This fast-moving tale will delight Buchan fans. Gripping and fun; it will encourage devotees to return to Buchan and newcomers to seek him out.

Harris does a fine job integrating characters from Buchan's works, imagining the way they might have aged and grown. The plotline is as one would imagine the next Hannay story might have been, had Buchan written it. Harris knows his history, and he knows his Buchan. This is a fine, fast, exciting read. Recommended.

A loving tribute to Buchan and thoroughly good fun.--Allan Massie
