Scottish politician, statesman and thriller writer John Buchan was a prolific and popular author whose work examined the nature of good and evil and explored the shifting boundaries between civilization and anarchy. Buchan wrote the best-selling thriller "The Thirty-Nine Steps" in 1915, one of 40 novels of his long career, which also included 60 biography, history and other non-fiction books. This comprehensive companion to Buchan's mystery fiction includes entries on the characters, novels, short fiction, films, themes, and symbols that readers need to know. Special attention to the serialized secret agent Richard Hannay, Buchan's most famous character. Also included are photographs, book covers and character and title appendices.
