The Man Within Summary

The Man Within by Graham Greene

This is the story of Francis Andrews, a young man whose betrayal of his fellow smugglers has left a man dead. Fearing vengeance, he flees and takes refuge in the house of a young, isolated woman who persuades him to give evidence against his accomplices in court. But neither she nor Andrews is aware that to both criminals and authority, treachery is as great a crime as smuggling.

The Man Within Reviews

Full of treasures for Greene enthusiasts: a complex web of betrayal and deceit and a tormented central character * Observer *
From the beginning Greene was fascinated by the thriller, which has at its heart deceit, an idea or an ideal betrayed, emotion hidden behind a mask * Guardian *
Greene had wit and grace and character and story, and a transcendant, universal compassion that places him for all time in the ranks of world literature -- John Le Carre
He was a writer who was intensely interested in the world more than in books or ideas. And this is why he was such a good story-teller. He was the least parochial of writers yet he was always interested in the particular -- John Berger
One of our greatest authors... For experience of a whole century he was the man within * Independent *
