London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1933. FIRST EDITION. Octavo, pp.383. Publisher's green cloth with gilt titles in pictorial dust-jacket. Book appears unread, with some faint marking to the edges. The jacket shows light use; some nicks to the spine ends and one short tear to the rear panel. A bright and attractive copy of one of Buchan's more opaque intelligence/espionage novels. The story of a disgraced former convict who is liberated just before the hostilities and seeks to redeem himself by enlisting in the Secret Service. His undercover work takes him behind enemy lines and after the war he remains a shadowy figure attempting to prevent the assassination of the German Chancellor. Another thrilling adventure from the master story-teller and author of 'The Thirty-Nine Steps. Item #40249
