This novel is a chilling exposé of violence and gang warfare in the pre-WWII underworld. Pinkie, the teenage gangster, is devoid of compassion or human feeling, despising weakness of the spirit or of the flesh. Responsible for the razor slashes that killed Kite and also for the death of Hale, he is the embodiment of calculated evil. As a Catholic, however, he is convinced that his retribution does not lie in human hands. He is therefore not prepared for Ida Arnold, Hale's avenging angel. Ida, whose allegiance is with life, the here and now, has her own ideas about the circumstances surrounding Hale's death. For the sheer joy of it she takes up the challenge of bringing the infernal Pinkie to an earthly kind of justice

"'The Comedians' is set in Haiti, where terror rides and death comes frequently and swiftly in the night. It is a story of passion and adventure, hope and disillusion.

It's a battlefield by Graham Greene( Book )

223 editions published between 1934 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 2,268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It's a Battlefield is both a suspense story and a serious novel, tense and probing. the keynote is set in a quotation from Kinglake at the beginning of the volume: 'In so far as the battlefield presented itself to the bare eyesight of men, it...was made up of nothing except small numberless circlets...each separate gathering...went on fighting it's own little battle in a happy and advantageous ignorance of the general state of the action....' these 'circlets' began with the killing of a policeman at a political rally in Hyde Park. Drover, a bus driver with Communist leanings, had struck the blow when he thought the policeman was going to injure his wife. The Minister would like to grant a reprieve, but thousands of laborers were on the verge of a crippling strike; a reprieve would indicate weakness on the part of the Minister. On the other hand, if Drover were executed and the workers retaliated it would cost the country millions of pounds--and the Minister would probably lose the next election. Then in one way or another Drover's family and dozens of figures on the outside became involved in the drama; in one way or another each life was changed."--
The third man by Graham Greene( Book )

382 editions published between 1949 and 2018 in 22 languages and held by 2,096 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The setting is post-war Vienna, a once-beautiful city that was now nothing but war rubble. It's administered by the four victorious nations, Russia, France, Great Britain and the United States, and they all communicate with each other in the language of their former enemy. There's a somber mood, a feeling of decay and destruction throughout. And, of course there's a mystery, and lots of suspense, as the reader is swept into a story of intrigue, betrayal and constantly changing alliances. --Linda Linguvic at Amazon.com
