Yup. This book just isn't going to improve, is it?
Well, let's say it's going to get somewhat more colorful ... including shades of "North by Northwest".

Oh, I've already encountered the plane. I'm not impressed, tho. Hannay is no Cary Grant. Not by a long stretch of the imagination. And I have yet to find a James Mason character that could redeem this mess of a book.
Definitely a case of "Hitch made the most of the written material he had to work with ..."

If I were ACD, I'd have written to Buchan to ask him to remove any references to my work.
Hmm. Maybe a case of "flattery is the best form of publicity"? (Maybe also "we're both Scots authors writing for a British audience"?)
