Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"This is no book for those who would turn delicate noses away from the gutters and sewers of life; but there is nothing that could give the faintest gratification to snickerers. If it is as downright as surgery, it is, also, as clean as a clinic. There is not an entirely admirable character in it; but there is not one that can, by any chance, be forgotten nor one that could be set aside as untrue to life....The prose is terse and vigorous; apt to break out unexpectedly into imagery that is both original and illuminating. Counsel for the prosecution has seldom presented a more overwhelmingly convincing case."

New York Times, 06/26/1938

Review:

"Mr. Graham Greene has worked a good deal of subtly flavored excitement into this story of gangsterism in Brighton....The story has an undeniably dramatic quality, which survives the recital of trivialities and occasional coarsenesses. The more squalid scenes appear to have truth on their side, though one would have preferred the ordinary virtues of humanity to pub-crawling good nature or theological complexities by way of contrast."

Times Literary Supplement, 07/16/1938

Book Description: Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Deluxe ed. 211 x 140 mm. Brand New Book. Hale knew, before he had been in Brighton three hours, that they meant to murder him. Graham Greene s chilling expose of violence and gang warfare in the pre-war underworld is a classic of its kind. Pinkie, a teenage gangster on the rise, is devoid of compassion or human feeling, despising weakness of both the spirit and the flesh. Responsible for the razor slashes that killed mob boss Kite and also for the death of Hale, a reporter who threatened the livelihood of the mob, Pinkie is the embodiment of calculated evil. As a Catholic, however, Pinkie is convinced that his retribution does not lie in human hands. He is therefore not prepared for Ida Arnold, Hale s avenging angel. Ida, whose allegiance is with life, the here and now, has her own ideas about the circumstances surrounding Hale s death. For the sheer joy of it, she takes up the challenge of bringing the infernal Pinkie to an earthly kind of justice. This Penguin Classics Deluxe edition features an introduction by J. M. Coetzee.
