Brighton Rock

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 a class by himself-the ultimate chronicler of twentieth-century man's consciousness and anxiety' William Golding, Independent
