"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."Greene, Graham is the author of 'Brighton Rock', published 2004 under ISBN 9780142437971 and ISBN 0142437972.
