The Ministry of Fear - An Entertainment - Graham Greene 1943 - William Heinemann Ltd, London - First Edition ‘A master thriller and a remarkable portrait of a twisted character.’ - Time.

‘Set in the torn landscape of the Blitz, this book is a phantasmagoric study in terror. Arthur Rowe was hamstrung by guilt, the guilt of having murdered his sick wife. He was standing aside from the war until the day when he happened to guess the true weight of a cake at a charity fete and from that moment on he’s a hunted man, the target of shadowy killers, on the run and struggling to remember and to find the truth.’ -
