    Richard Hannay, fringant trentenaire, s'ennuie ferme à Londres... Plus pour longtemps : son voisin de palier, qui venait de lui révéler des informations hautement confidentielles, est assassiné dans son salon.

    Dépositaire d'un terrible secret, il se retrouve embarqué dans une folle course-poursuite à travers tout le pays. Traqué par les membres d'une puissance organisation secrète résolue à tout pour le neutraliser, Richard Hannay ne recule devant aucun stratagème pour leur échapper. Travesti tour à tour en cantonnier, vagabond, tribun politique, il ne résiste pas au plaisir de faire sauter le repaire de ses ennemis à la dynamite et de voler quelques voitures au passage.

    Une course contre la montre échevelée dont on sort pantelant, mais ravi !
