CANCELED: The Usual Suspects Mystery Book Discuss "Greenmantle"

Sunday, Feb 4, 2018 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Discussion Canceled.

Facilitator Kelle Ruden leads a discussion of Greenmantle by John Buchan. Set during WWI, Richard Hannay, hero of The Thirty-Nine Steps, travels across war-torn Europe in search of a German plot and an Islamic Messiah. He is joined by three more of Buchan's heroes: Peter Pienaar, the old Boer Scout; John S. Blenkiron, the American determined to fight the Kaiser; and Sandy Arbuthnot, Greenmantle himself, modelled on Lawrence of Arabia. The intrepid four move in disguise through Germany to Constantinople and the Russian border toface their enemies: the grotesque Stumm and the evil beauty of Hilda von Einem.
