Product description

"The Third Man" is Greene's brilliant recreation of post-war Vienna, a city of desolate poverty occupied by four powers. Rollo Martins, a second-rate novelist, arrives penniless in Vienna to visit his old friend and hero Harry Lime. Harry is dead, but the circumstances surrounding his death are highly suspicious, and his reputation, at the very least, dubiousGraham Greene said of "The Third Man" that he 'wanted to entertain [people], to frighten them a little, to make them laugh' and the result is both a compeling narrative and a haunting thriller. "The Fallen Idol" is the chilling story of a small boy caught up in the games that adults play. Left in the care of the butler, Baines, and his wife, Philip realizes too late the danger of lies and deceit. But the truth is even deadlier.
