Voyage Into Fear: Von Schwabing is on the carpet at the German Embassy over the mess he made of the plot to destroy the British/Russian Peace Alliance described in ‘Fellowship Of The Black Stone’. He swears that The Fellowship Of The Black Stone will be successful this time in its intention to eliminate Britain’s First Sea Lord, Sir James West, whose armament of Great Britain is faster than Germany’s. Von Schwabing sets out to enlist Richard Hannay as an unwilling assassin of Sir James West.
Hannay is kidnapped and finds himself upon what appears to be a sea-going vessel. Using a young schoolgirl, who is in reality the Russian Grand-Duchess Madeline, Von Schwabing applies relentless pressure to Hannay who is put into a terrible moral dilemma. He must choose between the life of one of his best friends, Saunders, a member of Intelligence, and that of the Grand-duchess Madeline. Further he is railroaded by Von Schwabing into either killing Sir James West or letting Madeline die.
