The Forty Nine Steps

an adventure novel

A sequel to John Buchan's classic The Thirty Nine Steps

To be published in Autumn 2021.

In 1939, Britain is again moving towards war and once more Richard Hannay is called upon to serve his country in its hour of need.

Writing a sequel to a book you love is quite an experience.It's also daunting when the book is a classic like The Thirty Nine Steps. In all honesty, the logical part of my brain says I'm on a hiding to nothing with it. However, the other part of my brain is bouncing with excitement. I've had a blast writing the book. I've loved doing it, and I hope fans of Richard Hannay will approve.
