'The Third Man' is Graham Greene's brilliant recreation of postwar Vienna, a 'smashed dreary city' occupied by the four Allied powers. Rollo Martins, a second-rate novelist, arrives penniless to visit his friend and hero, Harry Lime. But Harry has died in suspicious circumstances and the police are closing in on his associates....
'The Fallen Idol' is the chilling story of a small boy caught up in the games that adults play. Left in the care of the butler and his wife whilst his parents go on a fortnight's holiday, Philip realises too late the danger of lies and deceit. But the truth is even deadlier.

Fine stories, stupid music interruptions
These were fine stories of intrigue and murder. The first novella, The Third Man, had more substance and I enjoyed it more—except for the stupid music coming in over the narration and at random breaks.
The narration of The Third Man was better than that of The Fallen Idol, as it had more varied expression and personality, and richer tone.
