Abstract:
"Set in Mexico, this novel 'describes the desperate last wanderings of a whisky priest as outlaw in his own state, who, despite a sense of his own worthlessness (he drinks, and has fathered a bastard daughter), is determined to continue to function as priest until captured....Like many of Greene's works, it combines a conspicuous Christian theme and symbolism with the elements of a thriller.'"
