Despite pursuing a very successful career in public life, culminating in the Governor-Generalship of Canada, John Buchan (1875-1940) was a prolific author, writing 30 novels and over 60 non-fiction works. He is best remembered for his fast-paced adventure novels and spy thrillers.
Set during the Napoleonic Wars, this historical tale of treason and espionage follows Anthony Lammas, a young Professor of Logic from St Andrews, as he sets off for London, but becomes entangled in a web of conspiracy. This new edition has an introduction by Buchan enthusiast Douglas Hurd.
