9780140286823: The Third Man

The Third Man is one of the truly great post-war films, starring Orson Welles and Joseph Cotton. A thrilling story of black-marketeering, it is set against a backdrop of Vienna in the immediate post-war era, when the city was divided into four zones amongst the major powers, Russia, Britain, France and America. Graham Greene wrote the novella first and then adapted it for the screenplay. Compelling and moving, it is written from the view of the British Chief of Police who is investigating the death of a certain Harry Lime. When Rollo Martins, a writer of Westerns, arrives in Vienna to visit his old school friend, he also becomes inextricably involved in the mystery surrounding Harry Lime.

Martin Jarvis is a widely acclaimed film, TV and stage actor who has also carved a name for himself in the world of audiobooks as a reader par excellence.

Review:

Still, for me, the best thriller ever written. Just the thing to listen to on the flight to Vienna - Jarvis reads it perfectly. ( Sue Arnold, The Guardian)

The narration is superb...taut and powerful. ( The Daily Telegraph)

Book Description:

A gripping tale of murder and intrigue in post-war Vienna

Book Description Penguin Books, United States, 1999. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 50th. 193 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Rollo Martins usual line is the writing of cheap paperback Westerns under the name of Buck Dexter. But when his old friend Harry Lime invites him to Vienna, he jumps at the chance. With exactly five pounds in his pocket, he arrives only just in time to make it to his friend s funeral. The victim of an apparently banal street accident, the late Mr. Lime, it seems, had been the focus of a criminal investigation, suspected of nothing less than being the worst racketeer who ever made a dirty living in this city. Martins is determined to clear his friend s name, and begins an investigation of his own. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780140286823
