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.

The captain and the enemy by Graham Greene( Book )
45 editions published between 1986 and 2011 in English and held by 2,412 libraries worldwide
In Graham Greene's final novel a secretive stranger takes Victor Baxter out of a boarding school much like that of Greene's own youth. The "Captain" changes the boy's name to Jim and brings him to London to serve as a surrogate son to a mysterious woman named Liza. Raised in odd, touching circumstances, Jim never comprehends the enduring relationship between the Captain and Liza, and he struggles to understand what love itself is. Although the novel then takes the Captain and Jim into seedy political intrigue in Panama and Nicaragua, it finally returns to the question of what the proofs of human love are. John Auchard's introduction establishes links to Greene's biography as it considers the places in the lost past where themes that preoccupy a character-or a novelist-had their flashes of genesis
