One aimless afternoon, Arthur Rowe was wandering through the streets of London. He was interrupted his walk only once to drop into a charity bazaar where-much to his suprise- he won a cake. That night a stranger, inordinately interested in the cake, appeared at Rowe's lodgings and tried to poison him. From that moment on, there closed around Arthur Rowe a strange, silent evilly efficient conspiracy...The Ministry of Fear..."A master thriller" -Time

From the Inside Flap:

For Arthur Rowe the charity fête was a trip back to childhood, to innocence, a welcome chance to escape the terror of the Blitz, to forget twenty years of his past and a murder...Then he guesses the weight of the cake, and from that moment on he?s a hunted man, the target of shadowy killers, on the run and struggling to remember and to find the truth.

From the Back Cover:

“Opening a new book by Graham Greene is like settling into a grand turismo car. Nothing will go wrong.” – Sunday Times
