The Thirty-One Kings, Robert J. Harris

John Buchan’s hero returns.

1940, the allied troops have been rescued at Dunkirk but Paris is about to fall to the Nazis and in Britain, Churchill is in danger of being ousted by interests who want the UK to roll over and surrender. Retired General Richard Hannay is still eager to serve his country in any way he can; except his country seems to have no use for him. Until Hannay and a close knit group of young Scots called the ‘Die Hards’ are recruited to rescue a valuable asset code-named ‘Roland’. Paris is a city full of danger and to rescue ‘Roland’ Hannay will have to walk straight into the lion’s den.
