  • "Greene was a past master of the psychological thriller and this was no exception"

    Observer
  • "A masterpiece - tapped out in the lean, sharp prose that film work taught Greene to perfect"

    Sunday Times
  • "All of the Greene hallmarks are there: pace, ingenuity, a sense of profundities suggested but never insisted upon"

    Penelope Lively, Sunday Telegraph
  • "Typically full of psychological obsession and tricks of perspective, this short story plays games with the concepts of identity and freedom. Threaded through with paranoiac attempts to be sure of time, life, and death, the story ends with impenetrable paradox; with a tragedy and a travesty, a revenge and a redressal, truth and the ultimate lie"
