In May 1914 Europe is close to war. Richard Hannay has just arrived back in London from Rhodesia and learns of an assassination plot. On returning to his flat later, he discovers his confidant, Scudder, dead. Under surveillance by the plotters, and feeling himself a prime suspect in Scudder's murder, he makes his way to Scotland where he hopes to foil the plot and clear his name. Thrilling, suspenseful action. Buchanan eventually wrote four other novels featuring Richard Hannay.
The works of H.G. Wells are well known for their prophetic ideas. The War in the Air is one of these works. Written in 1907, it presented the idea of using aircraft for the purposes of warfare. The protagonist in this story is Bert Smallways who becomes accidentally entangled in a German plot to bomb New York City from the air. As the bombardments and air warfare become more intense and destruction surrounds him, Bert faces the true horror of war ... even after it has ostensibly ended.
The story follows the development of Molly Gibson and her new stepsister Cynthia into womanhood within the gossiping and watchful society of Hollingford. It offers an ironic critique of mid-Victorian society disguised as a nostalgic evocation of village life.
