Description

Edward Leithen is the closest of Buchan's protagonists to theauthor's own experience and imagination.

A prosperous Scots lawyer andMP in London, Leithen seeks adventure to relieve the tedium ofrespectability. In The Power House he is forced by event and accident to see civilisation as a thin veneer over the human jungle; in John Macnab he makes his own adventure by playing the poacher; in Sick Heart River, seeking a lost friend he meets death and redemption in the wastes of Canada. Each book contrasts with the others; each pulls us into Buchan's world and holds us there.
