I realised that I was bottled as sure as a pickled herring, and that there was only one way out. I had to die. If my pursuers knew I was dead they would go to sleep again.

John Buchan
 
The perfect combination of fine writing and suspense-filled plot makes Buchan’s the Thirty-Nine Steps an engaging novel of intrigue, which was adapted to the screen by Hitchcock in 1935. Written in 1915, we follow protagonist Richard Hannay through England and the lowlands of Scotland as he eludes spies and keeps Europe from war.
