From master storyteller Graham Greene comes the tale of Anthony Farrant, who has boasted, lied and cheated his way through jobs all over the world. Then his adoring twin sister, Kate, gets him taken on as the bodyguard of Krogh, her lover and boss, a megalomaniac Swedish financier. All goes well until Krogh gives orders that offend Anthony's innate decency. Outraged and blind to risk, he leaks information to Minty, a shabby journalist and fellow victim of life, a decision that will lead to disastrous consequences.

Published in 1935 and set in Stockholm, this novel reflects the economic crisis of the 1930s and the amoral greediness of the capitalist, Krogh. It also is the story of twins - a brother and sister - and of their repressed incestuous relationship.
