CENTENARY EDITION WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY JAMES WOOD
Scobie, a police officer serving in a war-time West African state, is distrusted, being scrupulously honest and immune to bribery. But then he falls in love, and in doing so he is forced to betray everything he believes in, with drastic and tragic consequences.
