MOST LOVED. MOST RED. Ten must-read modern classics.
'Heaven was a word- hell was something he could trust.'
A gang war is raging through the dark underworld of Brighton. Seventeen-year-old Pinkie, malign and ruthless, has killed a man. Believing he can escape retribution, Pinkie is unprepared for the courageous, life-embracing Ida Arnold, who is determined to uncover him.
Graham Greene's chilling expose of violence, class, and gang warfare inspired many imitators. Few, if any, can match the originality of Brighton Rock, and of Pinkie - one of fiction's most unnerving and compelling villains.
