Richard Hannay’s boring life is turned upside down when he meets beautiful spy, Annabella Schmidt. When Annabella is murdered, Richard finds himself being hunted by the mysterious organisation, The 39 Steps. Who are they? And what is their devilish secret? To find out, Hannay must travel to the Scottish Highlands, foil dastardly foreign agents, cross the moors (many times) and win over the girl.
