Greenmantle

Описание:

`Greenmantle` continues the thrilling adventures of Richard Hannay. The story takes Hannay from convalescence following the Battle of Loos, back to London for a vital meeting at the Foreign Office and thence on a top-secret mission across war-torn German - occupied Europe. His mission; to neutralise and destroy a cunning and potentially devastating plot to foment Holy War in the Islamic Near East, which could ignite a powder-keg and shake the balance of world power and the course of war. Hannay is assisted by three intrepid companions: the suave, dashing, exotic and devastatingly romantic Sandy Arbuthnot, the American - John Scantlebury Blenkiron, and the South African Boer Scout - Peter Pienaar. In `Greenmantle` John Buchan clearly asserts his mastery of the genre of the espionage thriller, by drawing on his wide first-hand knowledge of the worlds of politics and secret intelligence.
