Centenary edition with a new introduction by Monica Ali.

The love affair between Maurice Bendix and Sarah, flourishing in the turbulent times of the London Blitz, ends when she suddenly and without explanation breaks it off. After a chance meeting rekindles his love and jealousy two years later, Bendix hires a private detective to follow Sarah, and slowly his love for her turns into an obsession.

About the Author

Graham Greene was born in Hertfordshire in 1904. While at Balliol College, Oxford he published his first book of verse. He continued to write throughout his lifetime, and served with the Secret Intelligence Service during the Second World War. He was a member of the Order of Merit and a Companion of Honour. Among the many people who paid tribute to him on his death was Kingsley Amis: 'He will be missed all over the world. Until today, he was our greatest living novelist.' He died in 1991.

"One of the most true and moving novels of my time, in anybody's language" William Faulkner "In a class by himself...the ultimate chronicler of twentieth-century man's consciousness and anxiety" -- William Golding "Devastating study of the collision of different kinds of faith, betrayal and commitment" The Times "This novel had a great effect on my life... This is not a sentimental book, or one full of the kindness of God, in that both the man and the woman suffer the pain of loss and feel the heat of hell. This novel persuaded me to become a Catholic" -- Beryl Bainbridge Guardian "Greene's novel of illicit love captures perfectly the atmosphere of rainy wartime London - try to read this in one sitting if you can" Express
