Brighton Rock

Back from holiday in Portugal, the cold and dark making us shiver, on checking the garden we discover the one pumpkin the slugs failed to destroy has also failed to ripen so Gail heads for the shops returning later with diabolical costumes for the children and I’m reminded of Graham Greene’s Brighton Rock, a book I read whilst away, a book I’ve read several times but which never fails to terrify, whose main character, Pinkie, is cruel and innocent and evil.
