Gripping, terrifying, an unputdownable read. Discover Graham Greene's most iconic novel. A gang war is raging through the dark underworld of Brighton. Seventeen-year-old Pinkie, malign and ruthless, has killed a man. Believing he can escape retribution, he is unprepared for the courageous, life-embracing Ida Arnold. Greene's gripping thriller exposes a world of loneliness and fear, of life lived on the 'dangerous edge of things.' In this gripping, terrifying, and unputdownable read, discover Greene's iconic tale of the razor-wielding Pinkie. 'Brighton Rock when I was about thirteen. One of the first lessons I took from it was that a serious novel could be an exciting novel - that the novel of adventure could also be the novel of ideas' Ian McEwan WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY J.M. COETZEE
