Major General Sir Richard Hannay thought that his life of adventure and danger was behind him with the end of the Great War. He was wrong.
When an old colleague comes asking for help, Hannay has to come out of retirement to battle a secret society that has kidnapped three innocents to advance their schemes. Hannay, aided by his intrepid wife Mary and his old friends, plunges into a pool of intrigue and hypnosis to find and rescue the Three Hostages before they come to deadly harm. Hannay, the Everyman hero, perseveres through a combination of pluck, grit, clear thinking and trusting in his friends. This time the danger strikes close to home and Hannay may lose everyone that he cares about.
