The Confidential Agent Summary

The Confidential Agent by Graham Greene

WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY IAN RANKIN

'In a class by himself...the ultimate chronicler of twentieth-century man's consciousness and anxiety' William Golding

In a small continental country civil war is raging. Once a lecturer in medieval French, now a government agent, D is a scarred stranger in England, sent on a mission to buy coal at any price. Initially, this seems to be a matter of straightforward negotiation, but soon, implicated in murder, accused of possessing false documents and theft, held responsible for the death of a young woman, D becomes a hunted man, tormented by allegiances, doubts and love.

'A superb storyteller...he had a talent for depicting local colour, a keen sense of the dramatic, and eye for dialogue, and skill in pacing his prose' * New York Times *
