Trusted by no one, trusting nobody, the Confidential Agent is sent to England. But before his mission has barely begun, he comes face to face with an agent from the other side. As the car he is driving is run down in the fog, a thought strikes him: It isn't probable - not in England, but it seems to be true, nonetheless - they're going to kill me.

    " This book might work better as a movie where you tend to suspend your credulity in the enjoyment of watching your favourite actor/actress. I found some of the stereotypes used for the 'baddies' were annoying, too. I've only ever read Brighton Rock before which I liked at the time but clearly this shouldn't have been my next Greene novel to read. "

    " This thriller story was a rare Greene that I really enjoyed how he dealt with the characters. His use of one letter initial for these people is carried on in my own writings. "

    " i need to give greene another shot. i wasn't too impressed with this book, but i heard this not a good one to start with. "

    " treadmill "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruth | 10/12/2013

    " A very engaging and literary spy novel by an excellent writer, narrated by Patrick Tull, who was one of the best over at Recorded Books. Good action and character and lots of mulling on the meaning of war, peace, love, death, and loyalty. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daren Kearl | 9/28/2013

    " It has the feel of a John Buchan novel like 39 Steps or Greenmantle. It took a little while to get going, but is chock full of shady characters, political intrigue and a classic love interest. Light but enjoyable "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Conor Bateman | 6/30/2013

    " Despite a perhaps rushed ending, this thriller was exceptionally entertaining and amusing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elaine Haby | 6/19/2013

    " Thoroughly old fashioned spy thriller.... Black and white movie style "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ian Sowers | 3/8/2013

    " Great fun full of vivid characters, big ideas and beautiful writing. Greene wrote the kind of books I'd like to write: 'entertainments' (to borrow his word) with substance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maya | 3/3/2013

    " A little slow to get into, but then it got really interesting and suspenseful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rob | 8/11/2012

    " Not at all what I was expecting in a spy novel. The protagonist is nothing like James Bond. He is ill-prepared, war-weary, old, distrusted by his own government, and doesn't really want to kill anyone. I almost put it down after a couple of chapters, but I'm glad I didn't. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chanpheng | 6/7/2012

    " Dreamlike but frenzied book about the member of a rebel group trying to buy coal for his country. Everything works against him. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cody VC | 4/20/2011

    " Stopped reading 89 pages in. (1956 edition, william heinemann ltd) Just didn't hook me, and the pointless she's-not-feminine-therefore-she-is-creepy treatment of the hotel manageress was no help. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Duffy | 2/27/2011

    " Never read any Greene before, looks like I've been missing out on a lot, time to get caught up "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah | 4/4/2010

    " Another of Greene's more minor works, still very enjoyable but I know there are better ones out there! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shirley | 11/18/2009

    " I love Graham Greene but this book seemed a bit sad. I plan to read most of his works this year. "

    " disappointing so far. very kafka-esque and not in a good way "

About the Author
Author Graham Greene

Graham Greene (1904–1991) was an English novelist, short-story writer, and playwright. He was an ardent convert to Catholicism, and religious themes are at the root of much of his writing. He served with the Secret Intelligence Service during the Second World War. His novels are set in places in a state of seedy decay, and many of his locations, such as Vietnam in The Quiet American and Cuba in Our Man in Havana, became international crisis spots.

About the Narrator

Patrick Tull (1941–2006), born in the United Kingdom, was a multitalented actor of the stage, screen, and television, as well as an award-winning audiobook narrator. He acted in numerous American television shows from 1962 to 1996, including Crossroads, and he had roles in six Broadway plays between 1967 and 1992, including Amadeus. His film credits from 1969 to 1996 included roles as Cecil in Parting Glances and Jerry the bartender in Sleepers. He served as narrator for the television series Sea Tales. He narrated nearly forty audiobooks, and his readings of The Canterbury Tales, The Letter of Marque, Monk’s Hood, The Vicar of Wakefield, and How Green Was My Valley each earned him an AudioFile Earphones Award. His narration of Patrick O’Brian’s Aubrey/Maturin novels was praised by novelist Stephen King as among his ten favorite audiobooks of 2006.
