The Island of the title is situated somewhere North of Scotland. Probably based on an island in the Faroes, its isolation is a relevant factor in the plot. The story starts with a Buchan coincidence: he meets a man he has not seen for 20 years, Lombard. Hannay later relates the circumstances of an incident in South Africa when they had saved a man’s life (Haraldsen) from business rivals. They swore to protect his heirs in the future. The showdown throws an interesting sidelight on the attitudes still prevailing at the time the book was written. Buchan seems in no doubt that Hannay and his colleagues are fully entitled to defend the Island by arms, and that any inquiry into any deaths resulting will exonerate those gentlemen of good social standing. Modern tastes will probably find it difficult to equate the professed love of wildlife with the rich man’s hobby of shooting it.

That was what happened to me on an October evening when I got into the train at Victoria . Read and listen to as many books as you like!
