Just before the outbreak of Word War I, Richard Hannay is let in on a German plot to assassinate the Greek premier and steal British war plans by an American spy, who is subsequently murdered. What follows is a breathtaking tale of flight and evasion, as Hannay avoids one danger after another, trying to avoid both the German spies and the police and save England from a murderous plot.

The Poison Belt

9781596882249 

by Arthur Conan Doyle

The Poison Belt was the second story that Conan Doyle wrote about Professor George Edward Challenger. Much of it takes place in a single room in Challenger’s house in Sussex – rather oddly, given that it follows The Lost World, the first Challenger story set largely outdoors in the wilds of South America. Challenger has predicted that the Earth is moving into a belt of poisonous ether which, based on its effect on the people of Sumatra earlier in the day, he expects to stifle humanity. Challenger seals his companions in a room with cylinders of oxygen, which he (correctly) believes will counter the effect of the ether.
