The Tenth Man
It's the time of the second World War. Jean-Louis Chavel is a rich lawyer, imprisoned and about to be shot. In a last-ditch attempt to save his life, he offers all his money and property to the family of any other prisoner willing to take his place. Most men think he is crazy -- but one agrees. The story of Chavel's life after this swap takes place is subtly and beautifully described by Greene in this work of fiction which would make for a wonderful movie. (I believe it was filmed for TV starring Anthony Hopkins as Chavel). A quick, smooth, engaging read.
