William Heinemann. 1934. FIRST EDITION 8vo. 8vo. Publisher's black cloth, gilt titles to spine. Top edge dusty, cloth a little sunned and handled, gift inscription to flyleaf, neat bookseller ticket to pastedown. Very good. An early, edgy thriller from Greene which portrays the murkier areas of London where Drover, a communist bus-driver, has been sentenced to death for killing a policeman in a political riot because he thought the policeman was going to strike his wife. A bitter irony hovers over the ensuing battles to save him. Item #33652
