The Secret Agent (Signet)
by Conrad, Joseph

Overview -
London, 1886 and Mr Adolf Verloc runs a sex shop in the heart of Soho. Unbeknown to his loyal wife Winnie, Verloc also works for the Russian embassy, spying on a group of London anarchists. The Russian government are furious with the English establishment's indifference to the anarchist threat gripping the rest of Europe. So Verloc is assigned a mission: Blow up the Greenwich Observatory and make it look like a terrorist attack to provoke a crackdown. Should he fail, Verloc's real identity as a spy will be exposed to his vicious comrades. Verloc is forced to turn to the volatile anarchist, The Professor, to supply explosives for his mission - an act which attracts the attention of Chief Inspector Heat of Scotland Yard. Caught between the spy masters and the police, Verloc grooms Winnie's young and vulnerable brother Stevie as his unsuspecting accomplice. When the truth and consequences emerge, Verloc must face Winnie's wrath ... From the producers of the acclaimed Line of Duty, this riveting psychological thriller stars Toby Jones as Verloc and Line of Duty's Vicky McClure as Winnie, with Stephen Graham (Boardwalk Empire) and Ian Hart (The Last Kingdom). Adapted by BAFTA award-winning Tony Marchant (Great Expectations) and directed by Emmy award-winning Charles McDougall (Hillsborough, House of Cards, The Good Wife), The Secret Agent will be broadcast on BBC One this summer.

    Notes: New York. 1983. November 1983. Signet/New American Library. 2nd Printing of This Signet Classic Edition. Very Good in Wrappers With A Tear Mark From A Price Sticker on The Front Cover. ISBN: 0451518047. Introduction By Frederick R. Karl. 240 pages. paperback. CE1804. FROM THE PUBLISHER-This extraordinary novel by one of the greatest of storytellers is both a chillingly prophetic examination of terrorism and the literary precursor of the espionage thrillers of such writers as Graham Greene and John Le CarrĂ©. The scene is turn-of-the-century London. The characters include idealistic revolutionaries, ruthless ideologues, bureaucratic police, and at the center, an undercover, counter-revolutionary mole whose mission is to provoke the radical group he has penetrated into a monstrous act of violence that will bring about its own destruction. In this world of plot and counterplot, where identities are deceptions and glowing slogans mask savage realities, each character becomes an ever more helpless puppet of forces beyond control-until one woman's love, grief, and. anger rips through the entire fabric of the conspiracy with a passionate, profoundly human act. A key work of twentieth-century art and consciousness, THE SECRET AGENT is, in the words of critic F. R. Leavis in The Great Tradition, 'one of Conrad's supreme masterpieces. one of the unquestioned classics of the first order that he added to the English novel. inventory #31497.
