Action & Adventure

Greenmantle-John Buchan It is 1915. Richard Hannay is convalescing from wounds received fighting in France, when he is approached by Sir Walter Bullivant of British Intelligence. Bullivant's son has been working undercover in the Middle East. It seems that the Germans with their Turkish Allies are planning to stir up a revolt in the Muslim world that could leave Egypt, India and North Africa in disarray. The boy has since been killed. The only clue he left behind is a piece of paper bearing the words 'Kasredin','cancer' and 'v.I'. Hannay must take up the trail. At stake could be the outcome of the war. Buchan is a master of the spy genre, and this astonishingly prescient and gripping story of danger and adventure has stood the test of time. Feathered Serpent ?

She seemed to care little about them ? they were just a very clever imitation after all ? but when she discovered a card tied round her neck she was terrified. On it was a crude drawing of a feathered serpent. Reporter Peter Dewin soon discovers that a wealthy artist, a boxing promoter and a nouveau riche stockbroker share her fear. But why? And who is behind the crimes of 'The Feathered Serpent'? Bulldog Drummond - Sapper Bulldog Drummond. Hero, patriot, sportsman and quintessential English gentleman.

Finding peace unbearably tedious he puts an ad in the newspaper offering his services to any client who can offer adventure. An attractive young woman called Phyllis contacts him fearing for her father who seems to be under the power of blackmailers. Without hesitation Drummond accepts the commission and starts to investigate and uncovers a plot that threatens not just Phyllis and
