One of Greene's greatest achievements - his anguished story of personal and moral confusion. Scobie - a police officer in a West African colony - is a good man. People are wary of him, though - disturbed by his scrupulous honesty in a war-torn state where no-one is immune to bribery. But when he falls in love, Scobie is forced into a betrayal of everything that he has ever believed in, with shattering results, and his struggle to maintain the happiness of two women destroys him.

He worked as a sub-editor at the Times, in the 20s, and was film critic and literary editor of the Spectator, and worked in Sierra Leone for the Foreign Office, where he based THE HEART OF THE MATTER. As well as many novels, he also wrote collections of short stories, travel books, and plays. When he died, in 1991, Kinglsley Amis said 'Until today, he was our greatest living novelist.'
