Read & Download A Gun for Sale Ü PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Raven is an ugly man dedicated to ugly deeds His cold blooded killing of a European Minister 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 and when the first of these is traced Raven becomes a man on the run As he tracks down the agent. There s just something incredible about the writing of Graham Greene I don t hesitate to make the claim that he is uite possibly the greatest writer in the English language during the 20th centuryA Gun For Sale is a deceptively simple story of a double crossed assassin out for revenge but Greene was a skillful analyst of the human condition and so the real meat of the novel comes from the conflicts of his characters both external and internal cause eual amounts of pain discomfort and in smaller doses pleasure The book was the basis for the impressive 1942 classic noir This Gun For Hire starring Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake and co written by the great noir author W R Burnett this film is full of uality although naturally the action was moved from the North of England to America There s a rather fun bit that features mistaken identity due to a gas mask drill I ve not seen anything like it before or since and naturally there s a completely uncalled for scene featuring Veronica Lake singing a song uite badly whilst dressed as a leather clad fishermanThe other great pleasure of this novel is the use of location and the manner in which Greene evokes the choking fog and the grey light of a miserable Northern England it s a little cliche in film circles to say things like the location is the star but in literature only a truly great writer can make that so with just a few seemingly offhand phrases
