This Novella (in this edition together the Fallen Idol)is set in Vienna, it was intended as a draft for a screenplay. Greene felt the film was superior to his writing. Gone are the fin de siècle coffee houses, and the gracious old world of this great city. Vienna has been ravaged by war. Rollie Martins visits his old friend Harry Lime, only to find his old chum has died in a car accident. All, however, is not as it seems.
