  • Information


A gripping tragicomedy of a bungled kidnapping in a provincial Argentinean town, considered to be one of Greene's finest novels. Charley 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. WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY NICHOLAS SHAKESPEARE'Perhaps the most enduring novel that even he has give us' Daily Mail
