Synopsis (credit: back cover)

In a provincial Argentinian town a group of revolutionaries kidnap the wrong man.

Their victim — Charley Fortnum, the 'Honorary Consul' — is sixty-one years old, living on whisky and his disputed status as British consul. In this gripping tragi-comedy, Graham Greene explores the far-reaching repercussions of the bungled kidnap.

On the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die List.

Graham Greene at his best. No character is oversimplified, no setting without authenticity.
