9780143039303: Gun for Sale (Penguin Classics)

Raven is an ugly man dedicated to ugly deeds. His cold-blooded killing of a European Minister of War is an act of violence with chilling repercussions, not just for Raven himself but for the nation as a whole. The money he receives in payment for the murder is made up of stolen notes and when the first of these is traced, Raven becomes a man on the run. As he tracks down the agent who has been double-crossing him and attempts to elude the police, he becomes both hunter and hunted: an unwitting weapon of a strange kind of social justice. In doing so, he sets the stage for Greene's next novel, "Brighton Rock." This Penguin Classics edition features an introduction by Samuel Hynes.

Review:

"Graham Greene taught us to understand the social and economic cripples in our midst. He taught us to look at each other with new eyes. I don't suppose his influence will ever disappear" (Auberon Waugh Independent)

"A masterly storyteller... An enormously popular writer who was also one of the most significant novelists of his time" ( Newsweek)

"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)

From the Publisher:

With a new introduction by Robert Macfarlane
