Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Buchan's ability to make you feel as if you are in the most beautiful parts of the British countryside is unsurpassed. The action is entertaining, the prose splendid.

I am a big fan of John Buchan. This is a great story. Great reader too!
I love John Buchan books, especially Richard Hanny I was extremely pleased to see the later books being read and sold for audibles,although where is the fourth book? Read very well, although this book is probably my least favorite. I really don't think that Sandy would have a Scottish accent as he is upper class and educated in private school in England, but that is the only negative. Please now provide The 3 Hostages.

The last in the Hannay series it takes place around 15 years after the events in the previous book "The three hostages".
Well constructed: a slow build to an exciting climax in the wilds of islands belonging to Denmark.
Given it was written in the mid-1930s, therefore you allow for the archaic language and attitudes, it's still a cracking tale; a real Ripping Yarn without Gerald Winfrey ("Truth be told, I was jolly fed up with being a hero").
