Gripping, terrifying, an unputdownable read. Discover Graham Greene's most iconic novel.

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 this gripping, terrifying, and unputdownable read, discover Greene's iconic tale of the razor-wielding Pinkie.

'Brighton Rock when I was about thirteen. One of the first lessons I took from it was that a serious novel could be an exciting novel - that the novel of adventure could also be the novel of ideas' Ian McEwan

“I think I'll have more of where this came from...”

A chilling tale told in the most exquisite of styles. Greene delivers a frightfully gripping thriller which sucked me in from the first page and never let me go. Marvelous storytelling.
