Inhaltsangabe: Greenmantle is a classic espionage thriller packed with action that is set in the First World War. The reckless all-action hero Richard Hannay, first featured in John Buchan's thriller The Thirty-Nine Steps, is summoned to probe rumors of an uprising in the Muslim world. He undertakes a dangerous journey through enemy territory to meet up with his friend Sandy Arbuthnot; and together with Peter Pienaar, the old Boer scout, and John S. Blenkiron, the American determined to fight the Kaiser, they travel in disguise to the Russian border to face the German conspirators: the grotesque and hard-headed Colonel Ulrich von Stumm, and the powerful and wicked Hilda von Einem.
From the Back Cover:
In his classic espionage thriller The Thirty-Nine Steps, John Buchan introduced Richard Hannay, an appealing antihero with the intelligence and daring to thwart a conspiracy involving British secrets and German spies. Greenmantle, the second in Buchan's five-part series of spy novels, reintroduces the intrepid secret agent Hannay. Tasked by the Foreign Office with investigating a rumored uprising in the Muslim world, Hannay and his associates must prevent Germany and its Turkish partners from turning the tide of World War I by launching a jihad against the Allies.
Buchan's fast-paced tale of pursuits and escapes takes readers across war-torn Europe and behind enemy lines from Vienna to Constantinople and the Russian front. Written in lean, contemporary prose, this gripping novel offers an action-packed and remarkably topical tale of Middle Eastern politics and intrigue.
