For Arthur Rowe the charity fête was a trip back to childhood, to innocence, a welcome chance to escape the terror of the Blitz, to forget twenty years of his past and a murder...Then he guesses the weight of the cake, and from that moment on he's a hunted man, the target of shadowy killers, on the run and struggling to remember and to find the truth.

Editorial Reviews

Released in 1929, The Man Within was Greene's first novel. His story of a hunted man one step ahead of his fate would play into many of his later efforts, including 1943's Ministry of Fear. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
From the Publisher
