Publisher's Summary

Tom Baker stars as Sir Walter Bullivant, with David Robb as man of action Richard Hannay, in a thrilling BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation.

In this classic tale of wartime espionage, Richard Hannay's living nightmare begins at home with the discovery of a dead man in his London flat. He becomes an innocent on the run, pursued by the police for a murder he didn't commit.

In Scotland, Hannay realises that the notebook he recovered from the dead man is worth far more than he first thought, not least of all to a gang of German spies who will apparently stop at nothing to retrieve it.

The Foreign Office in London is his last refuge of safety, and when Sir Walter Bullivant becomes convinced of Hannay's innocence, the two join forces. If they are to foil German plans to attack the British fleet, they must first unlock the notebook's secret of the 39 steps...

    "Bravo!"

    Superb!

    The cast is fabulous and the quality is what you'd expect from a BBC production.

    It is a shame that it's abridged but you cannot have everything.

    Plus, it's always great to hear Tom Baker!

    Buy it!

    "Brilliant"

    I just live these old style war thrillers, some great 'non-pc' lines and such a devil may care attitude. Yes it's a thriller but it's incredibly relaxing to listen to.
