    [synopsis] => In this classic by the author of The Thirty-Nine Steps, a retiring hero's past draws him into an action-packed adventure capped by a deadly standoff.

 A long-forgotten promise made by Richard Hannay finds him honor-bound to resolve a violent vendetta endangering the lives of a young father and his daughter from unscrupulous and desperate men. Hannay sets out on a high-octane chase from the rural tranquility of his English manor to the Scottish Borders, and ultimately to Scandinavia. On the remote Island of Sheep, a final confrontation begins, and everything will be decided, once and for all . . .

 This, the last of the Hannay adventures-and the last of Buchan's novels to be published during his lifetime-is a rare gem of high drama interwoven with Buchan's personal beliefs about the problems of a post-war world.
