Abstract:

Sabotage: Karl Verlok leads a secret life as a paid terrorist which leads undercover agent Ted Spencer to move in next door to Verlok and his wife Sylvia. Feeling that something's up, Verlok sends Sylvia's younger brother to deliver something for him, only the young man doesn't know he's delivering a time-bomb. Secret agent: An ever-winding tale of deception that revolves around British novelist Edgar Brodie and secret agent Elsa Carrington. Their search for a ruthless murderer takes them to Switzerland, through the Alps and a train to Greece. Will a surprise air attack bring an end to their search and their lives? The 39 steps: Canadian rancher Richard Hannay is on vacation in England when a lady he's previously met shows up at his door with a map in her hand and a knife in her back, mumbling something about "39 steps." Now wanted for her murder, Hannay escapes to the Scottish town that appeared on the map.
