Deployed to the Middle East during the First World War, British secret agent Richard Hannay must stop the Germans and Turks from creating an uprising in the Muslim World—an uprising that would prove devastating to Allied efforts to win the war. Forced to find his own way through enemy territory to rendezvous with his friend and comrade Sandy Arbuthnot, Richard’s survival depends on figuring out the enemy's plan and stopping it before it is too late.
Revisiting the memorable characters from The Thirty-Nine Steps, Greenmantle is one of two Richard Hannay novels set during the First World War. The Thirty-Nine Steps and its four sequels established John Buchan as an original thriller writer and pioneer of espionage fiction.
