A Gun for Sale: An Entertainmentby Graham Greene
Raven is an ugly man dedicated to ugly deeds. His cold-blooded killing of a EuropeanMinister of War is an act of violence with chilling repercussions, not just for Raven himself but for the nation as a whole. The money he receives in payment for the murder is made up of stolen notes. When the first of these is traced, Raven is a man on the run. As he tracks down the agent who has been double-crossing him and attempts to elude the police, he becomes both hunter and hunted: an unwitting weapon of a strange kind of social justice.
