The Island of the title is situated somewhere North of Scotland. I took this book with me as holiday reading, and did not manage to finish it while away. 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. I found the pace much slower than the previous four Hannay books.
