Greenmantle, a tale of intrigue and adventure, was first published in 1916, after the end of World War I. It features Richard Hannay, hero of the author's earlier novel The Thirty-Nine Steps. As he travels through Europe to foil a German plot and find an Islamic Messiah, he is joined by three more of Buchan's heroes: Peter Pienaar, a Boer scout; John Blenkiron, an American determined to fight the Kaiser; and Sandy Arbuthnot (Greenmantle), modeled on Lawrence of Arabia. The intrepid friends move in disguise through Germany to Constantinople to the Russian border to confront their enemies-the grotesque Stumm and the evil beauty Hilda von Einem. This publication from Boomer Books is specially designed and typeset for comfortable reading.

This, the second in the series featuring the espionage exploits of Richard Hannay is somewhat more elaborately developed than The Thirty-nine Steps but it shares many of the first book's shortcomings, notably a plot line that requires a great degree of suspension of disbelief. The fact that characters keep re-encountering each other over vast stretches of territory at critical moments is particularly disturbing. It's an amusing tale that held my attention but I think I've had quite enough of Hannay by now and I'll take a pass on the remaining books.

As I recall, I got this for a family member and they weren't too keen on it and I never read it.
