  • One of the two or three novelists who really count

    V.S. Pritchett
  • A slim and curious tale

    The Times

    Chicago Tribune
  • In this short, skillful book we enter those disparate worlds Greene has made his own - the England of Brighton Rock and the exotic Central American territories in which his restless talent has so often roamed

    New York Times
  • A rattling good yarn. Under the spur of Greene's sharp, light touch, its narrative gallops along.
