The Third Man is one of the truly great post-war films, starring Orson Welles and Joseph Cotton. A thrilling story of black-marketeering, it is set against a backdrop of Vienna in the immediate post-war era, when the city was divided into four zones amongst the major powers, Russia, Britain, France and America. Graham Greene wrote the novella first and then adapted it for the screenplay. Compelling and moving, it is written from the view of the British Chief of Police who is investigating the death of a certain Harry Lime. When Rollo Martins, a writer of Westerns, arrives in Vienna to visit his old school friend, he also becomes inextricably involved in the mystery surrounding Harry Lime.

Martin Jarvis is a widely acclaimed film, TV and stage actor who has also carved a name for himself in the world of audiobooks as a reader par excellence.
