LibraryThing Review

User Review  - bibliophile_pgh - LibraryThing

I sound redundant when I keep saying this is one of my favorite books by Graham Greene...but it is. It is a great adventure story that takes place in Mexico. Graham Greene has a level of brilliance about his writing. I cannot be disappointed by any of his books. Read full review

User Review  - JVioland - LibraryThing

1930s, Mexico. The suppression of the Church. A priest eludes capture by a policeman who emphatically hates anyone connected with Catholicism. The priest is a compassionate figure, a true Christian with a sinner's habits. Very engaging. The best Greene I have read. Read full review
