Castle Macnab

by Robert J. Harris

Castle Macnab Synopsis

In 1920s Scotland a foreign dignitary on a secret visit has been abducted by men who plan to murder him. Veteran adventurer Richard Hannay must recruit three of his oldest friends to prevent a catastrophe that could plunge Europe into another war. It is a mission none of them ever expected to undertake, for the man they must rescue was once their sworn enemy - the Kaiser. As he and his allies pursue a desperate chase through the Highlands, Hannay discovers that he has stumbled upon an international conspiracy, one that shockingly involves a member of the British royal family. In Castle Macnab Robert J. Harris, bestselling author of The Thirty-One Kings, has created a new adventure for Richard Hannay and a sequel to John Buchan's classic novel John Macnab.

Castle Macnab Press Reviews

'Suitably swashbuckling, with plenty of nods to Buchan's other novels and works. Good fun and an admiring tribute' * Scotland on Sunday * 'Harris revives the lost art of the atmospheric, erudite, page-turning adventure story. A terrific read' -- Anthony O'Neill, author of Dr Jekyll and Mr Seek 'Harris makes [Buchan's] creatures and places accessible by virtue of their honour, their wit their courage and by immersing them in a rattling good plot. Richard Hannay Lives , if he ever died' * West Highland Free Press * 'an entertaining new adventure ... [t]here's genuine empathy for those affected by the Great War, and it shows how emotional damage distorts ethical values for men and women of all backgrounds. A yarn with a heart' -- Katharine Quarmby * Historical Novels Society *
