"Thirty-nine steps--I counted them..." This cryptic message, scrawled in a dead man's hand was all that Richard Hannay had to go on. It was the only clue to the dread cult called Black Stone, and to the man with eyes lidded like a hawk. Hannay himself was a fugitive, wanted for murder. But he knew that unless he solved the riddle of the thirty-nine steps, the life of a nation--and Richard Hannay--would soon be finished.
Very interesting book. I really enjoyed it very much. It is the story of a dinner party that becomes hostage for several months and all the relationships that ensue between captives and captors. Worth reading.
This book is based on a Disney Channel movie. Although it is not great literature for adults, my children liked it. It is about a teen boxer who becomes a Double Dutch jump rope champion. It has themes of communication with parents, different genders trying different sports, and enjoying what youdo.
