Review:

"The most ingenious, inventive and exciting of our novelists... A master of storytelling" (V. S. Pritchett The Times)

"I read Brighton Rock when I was about thirteen. One of the first lessons I took from it was that a serious novel could be an exciting novel - that the novel of adventure could also be the novel of ideas" (Ian McEwan)

"Graham Greene had wit and grace and character and story and a transcendent universal compassion that places him for all time in the ranks of world literature" (John le Carre)

"A superb storyteller with a gift for provoking controversy" ( New York Times)

Book Description:

Gripping, terrifying, an unputdownable read - Greene's iconic tale of the razor-wielding Pinkie.
