Police thriller set in England on the eve of World War II. An industrialist has economic interests in the conflict, and hires Raven, a hitman, to kill a Czech Minister, which could provoke a war. But he betrays the murderer, paying him with traceable counterfeits. In this way, Raven seeks the traitor for revenge, despite being actively sought by the police. This is one of Greene's "Catholic novels", where he addresses the subject of personal redemption, forgiveness, reconciliation.
