Publisher's Summary

The second of Richard Hannay's adventures takes him from the trenches of the First World War on a mission of vital importance to the British campaign in the East. In an attempt to manipulate their Turkish allies the Germans have created a religious figurehead, a prophet of a new order to unify the disparate tribes of Asia and crush the allied offensive. Pursued by the barbaric General Stumm, Hannay and his old South African friend and teacher Peter Pienaar with fellow soldier Sandy Arbuthnot and American engineer and less than ‘nootral’ John S. Blenkiron make their different ways to Constantinople to find the elusive Greenmantle and do what they can to avert disaster.

But who is Greenmantle and what dastardly part has the sinister fanatic Hilda von Einem to play in the game which will determine the outcome of the war. Packed with incident and incredible feats of derring-do the story culminates at the offensive. Buchan’s life in politics and his work for the Intelligence Corps gave him knowledge and an insight that few others could have at the time. With remarkable prescience he reveals the main theme and keeps the attention to the last.

What the Critics Say

"Peter Joyce is the most remarkable one-man band in audiobook publishing. Joyce, an experienced actor, reads them all himself." (The Independent)

    I love books, no matter the form. They have always been the place to go for peace and quiet.

    Story
    "Greenmantle"
    Would you listen to Greenmantle again? Why?

    Yes. I have listened more than twice.


    What other book might you compare Greenmantle to and why?

    The Thirty Nine Steps. It's the first book in the Hannay series.


    What does Peter Joyce bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Joyce gives good voice to a story written in first place. And growing up in the days of black and white movies and radio drama I can see in my mind what I am listening to.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A spy and his friends. A woman whose lures cannot be denied. A villain to. flee from. A War to End all War's.


    Any additional comments?

    I've always loved radio drama. Closing my eyes and just listening and imagining the sights that go with the sound.

    Story
    "If you enjoyed the 39 steps - dont read this"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story is a repetition of the 39 steps just in a different context


    What could John Buchan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Thought of a new plot


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    fine


    Could you see Greenmantle: A Richard Hannay Thriller, Book 2 being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

    dont know but I;m not sure that I would watch - it would need a lot of screenplay work to make it a thriller
