    This is Greene at his best, providing a gnashing noir, a tale of chase and deception The Confidential Agent distills the fears of the late 1930s, people are being driven to an almost post human ignobility Attempting to stay above the feral pragmatism, an agent known as D makes his way to England The timeframe and circumstances suggest The Spanish Civil War, but the details blur into a gen

    The Confidential Agent 1939 by Graham Greene is surprisingly good I say surprisingly given that Graham Greene wanted it published under a pseudonym so I was expecting the worst It would make a good companion read to The Ministry of Fear 1943 which is another wonderful Graham Greene book written during the WW2 era Click here to read my review of The Ministry of Fear Back to The Confidential Agent, a man, D, an ex Medieval F
