Three Entertainments: This Gun For Hire/Ministry of Fear/Confidential Agent (Classic Crime)Three Entertainments: This Gun For Hire/Ministry of Fear/Confidential Agent by Graham Greene
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Somewhat readable book from Graham Greene. Graham Green does not write to my taste and his books live a bad taste in my mouth.
The book is about an agent who comes to England to secure coal for his civil war ravaged country. The book is about the various tribulations that he goes through in England where he is relentlessly chased by his enemies and by bad luck.
He is dogged by death in every step that he takes and ends up failing to secure the coal that he and his countrymen need to fight the war.
To know how he partly succeeds, read the book. That is the only redeeming part of the book.
