Summary
This is Graham Greene's 1938 novel about Pinkie Brown, a teenage gangster who tries to establish himself in the Brighton underworld, describing his criminal ambitions, and the events surrounding the murder of corrupt newspaperman, Charles Hale. A masterpiece of psychorealism, this fascinating study of evil, sin, and the appalling strangeness of the mercy of God withholds easy judgement as a narrative takes us through the moral question of what is simultaneously fascinating and repellent
