Greene’s sweltering tale of political intrigue, assassination and voodoo in 1960s Haiti highlights the brutality of Papa Doc Duvalier’s regime. Duvalier was moved to respond, describing Greene as “A liar, a cretin, a stool-pigeon... unbalanced, sadistic, perverted... a perfect ignoramus... lying to his heart's content... the shame of proud and noble England... a spy... a drug addict... a torturer.” Greene later wrote “the last epithet has always puzzled me.”
First edition, first printing, near fine condition, in a dust jacket in archival acetate cover. 1966.
