The ministry of fear (Collectors Library)

by Graham Greene (Author)

Synopsis

It is 1941 and bombs have turned London into the front line of a world war - it is a city of nightmares. Hitler's agents are running a blackmail operation to obtain documents that could bring the nation to instant defeat. Arthur Rowe, a man once convicted of a notorious mercy killing, stumbles onto a German spy operation in Bloomsbury and must be silenced. Even with his memory taken from him, he is still a very dangerous witness. In the hands of Graham Greene, this tale unfolds both as a taut thriller and as a haunting exploration of pity, love, and guilt. Universally acknowledged as one of the greatest of all spy novels, The Ministry of Fear shows us what happens when a man knows too much.

With an Introduction by Professor Richard Greene.
