The Human Factor
London: The Bodley Head, 1979.
A magnificent late spy thriller, from an old pro, in which the cold-blooded cogs of British intelligence are brought to a halt by an unlikely conspirator from within.
As so often, Greene is most interested in any crises of conscience that lurk behind the facade of the unforgiving establishment.
Hardcover, with slight spine lean, in crisp dust jacket.
