WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY NICHOLAS SHAKESPEARECharley Fortnum is the 'Honorary Consul', a whisky-sodden figure of dubious authority taken by a group of rebels.
As Eduardo Plarr, a local doctor, negotiates with revolutionaries and the authorities for Fortnum's release, the corruption of both becomes evident.
In this spare, tense novel, Graham Greene explores the morality of a political system that turns priests into killers.
