9780140185362: The Ministry of Fear: An Entertainment (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics)

Set in the torn landscape of the Blitz, this book is a phantasmagoric study in terror. Arthur Rowe was hamstrung by guilt, the guilt of having murdered his sick wife. He was standing aside from the war until the day when he happened to guess the true weight of a cake at a charity fete.

From the Inside Flap:

For Arthur Rowe the charity fête was a trip back to childhood, to innocence, a welcome chance to escape the terror of the Blitz, to forget twenty years of his past and a murder...Then he guesses the weight of the cake, and from that moment on he?s a hunted man, the target of shadowy killers, on the run and struggling to remember and to find the truth.

From the Back Cover:

“Opening a new book by Graham Greene is like settling into a grand turismo car. Nothing will go wrong.” – Sunday Times
