In a poor Mexican state in the 1930s, the Red Shirts have viciously persecuted the clergy and murdered many priests. Yet one remains - the ‘whisky priest’ who believes he's lost his soul. On the run and with the police closing in, his routes of escape are being shut off, his chances getting fewer. But compassion and humanity force him along the road to his destiny…
Andrew Sachs reads Graham Greene’s powerful novel about a worldly Roman Catholic priest and his quest for penitence and dignity.

One of the greatest of Graham Greene's books which is beautifully brought to life by Andrew Sachs.
I did this book at school and it remained with me in the back of my mind. The complexity of the main character was sore on my head, as it twists and turns depending on when you look. Well narrated
