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, u003ciu003eBrighton Rocku003c/iu003e. u003cbu003eThis Penguin Classics edition features an introduction by Samuel Hynes.u003cbru003eu003c/bu003eu003cbru003e For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.
