THE 39 STEPS
Time & Place: England/Scotland. 1930s. Bored Canadian Richard Hannay, on holiday in London, meets a mysterious woman who says she’s a spy. When she is murdered in his flat and he is accused, Hannay sets out to uncover the meaning of the “39 Steps,” a secret she spoke with her dying breath. Hannay, unsure of whom he can trust, crisscrosses England and Scotland on a thrilling adventure involving “train chases, plane crashes, shadowy murders, beautiful spies, trilbied heavies, dastardly villains” and of course love, as he races against time to save England and the world.
