[I only read two of the novels in the collection.] Greenes fictional worlds are unrelentingly bleak, dark and confused. InGun and Agent, senseless war looms, and the protagonists are powerless to stop it. Guns Raven is the ultimate psychopath, lacking morality and spiritual solace,and the victim of a nightmarish childhood and family situation. His one chance at intimacy, with the tolerant Anne, is thrown back in his face, and he is betrayed again. The relationship between Anne and Mather is interestingly tried as she become an unwitting accomplish is Ravens crimes.

The story is a lot deeper than it seems on the surface, as are all of Greenes.In Agent, D. enters a Kafkaesque world of pursuers and illogical bureaucracy which he is powerless to resist. Mysterious forces thwart his every effort to stop a coal sale to aid his countrys oppressors. The Enternatio language concept is a joke in such a paranoid culture. His relationship with Rose is sketchy at best--the ending is uncharacteristically happy for Greene.
