The Thirty-Nine Steps is an adventure novel by Scottish author John Buchan. The novel is set during May/June 1914. Europe is close to war and spies are everywhere. Richard Hannay has just returned to London from Rhodesia to begin a new life, when freelance spie, Franklin Scudder, asks for his help. Scudder reveals he has uncovered a German plot to murder the Greek Premier and steal British plans for the outbreak of war.
The Secret Agent, Joseph Conrad's 1907 novel about an anarchist plot to blow up the Royal Observatory at Greenwich -- in fact, a scheme by a secret police agent to stir up a government backlash -- has acquired a kind of cult status as the classic novel for the post-9/11 age. Conrad's villain, the Professor, who never goes out without a glass vial of high explosives in his b reast pocket and a detonator in his palm, has been taken to be a prescient portrait of the terrorists who menace our own world.* Set in 1886 London, the novel follows the life of Mr. Verloc, a secret agent.
