READ & DOWNLOAD A Gun for Sale ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Who has been double crossing him and attempts to elude the police he becomes both hunter and hunted an unwitting weapon of a strange kind of social justice In doing so he sets the stage for Greene’s next novel Brighton Rock This Penguin Classics edition features an introduction by Samuel HynesFor than seventy years Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literatu. 35 starsSince some 50 years ago in Thailand a horrible Thai word translated from gunman that is meaning a hired killer who uses his handgunfirearm to kill a target victim has been widely appeared in news reports and informal conversations When I first read its synopsis I didn t want to read this novel because I don t admire those guys as such however there are a few exceptions like the two great American gunfighters like Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday who famously defended themselves and subdued those outlaws in the name of justice and security of suffering peopleIronically the title itself and the story are a bit different because its readers would not find any gun for sale anywhere I think Mr Greene has decided on something illegally mysterious and deadly regarding the title over A Gunman for Hire won t do it s obviously explicit interestingly the US title This Gun For Hire was first used in June 1936 followed by the UK title A Gun For Sale in July 1936 One of the reasons is that the story involves a man called Raven hired by Cholmondeley miraculously pronounced Chumley only two from its obvious four syllables who has been employed by the Jewish steel tycoon Sir Marcus to kill an old War Minister by an automatic Eventually he knows he is betrayed since Cholmondeley Mr Davis has paid him only two hundred phoney pounds while It was worth than half a million to him p 161 Enraged by being double crossed he has no choice but be on the run from the police including police detective Mather Anne s fiance and Saunders his protege colleague So Raven has become the hunter having Anne as the shield in the midst of fragile friendship who finally takes his revenge on Mr Davis and Sir Marcus he himself is gunned down by Saunders Interestingly I wonder why Raven keeps saying I m educated p 11 2 42 1 p 44 1 93 1 116 1 117 1 or indirectly he was educated p 85 2 87 1 totaling ten times while talking to people or being narrated probably due to his want of formal education I think it is his habitual way in comforting or encouraging himself due to his seemingly obvious inferiority As a thriller we would still find some humorous scenes for example He put his arm tentatively round Ruby s waist and sueeze her then loosened hastily as an electrician came along You re a clever girl Mr Davis said you ought to have a part I bet you ve got a good voice Me a voice I ve got as much voice as a peahen Give me a little kiss Of course I will They kissed rather wetly What do I call you Ruby asked p 152This extracted paragraph is perfect since it denotes someone whose innocent appearance is worth suspectingThe High Street was curiously empty except that there were police about than usual he had uite forgotten the gas practice No one attempted to interfere with Mr Davis his face was well known to all the force though none of them could have said what Mr Davis s occupation was Up the street from the Tanneries a medical student in a gas mask was approaching p 153We keep reading around four pages till we reach this part Mr Davis shivered slightly and turned on his electric fire The man in the gas mask spoke and again the muffled coarse voice pricked at Mr Davis s memory Are you scared of something There s madman loose in the town Mr Davis said p 157Out of the blue the name of the killer is exposed as we can see from the following He Mr Davis was no longer in a hurry he wasn t busy any he wanted companionship He said You aren t in any hurry take that thing off it must be stuffy and have a glass of port The muffled voice said The money Come away from there Raven said You ve locked the door p 158My point is that from the context the killer still wears the gas mask and he hasn t taken it off therefore it s illogically to reveal his name There is one thing I think such a word wouldn t do when I read this paragraph You re mad Sir Marcus whispered He was too old to be frightened the revolver represented no greater danger to him than a false step in getting into his chair a slip in his bath p 161One of the reasons is that after rereading before and after this cited page the words mentioned as the weapon used by Raven I ve found are automatic gun and pistol in other words no revolver is mentioned or found as a revolver anywhere so it might have been a slip of the pen In brief this novel is worth spending our time provided that we take Raven as a fictive character an unexemplary assassin whose dangerous ideas and deeds should be taken into account with care and wisdom in other words justice will finally conuer Dark Tide Rising William Monk #24 unwitting weapon of a strange kind of social justice In doing so he sets the stage for Greene’s next novel Brighton Rock This Penguin
