From master storyteller Graham Greene comes the tale of Anthony Farrant, who has boasted, lied and cheated his way through jobs all over the world. Then his adoring twin sister, Kate, gets him taken on as the bodyguard of Krogh, her lover and boss, a megalomaniac Swedish financier. All goes well until Krogh gives orders that offend Anthony's innate decency.

Master of deception and a scam artist extraordinaire, Anthony Farrant does anything to get a great job that will take him where he wants to go. All was going well until his twin sister sets him as the bodyguard for her lover, Krogh. Actually, working for the megalomaniacal Swedish financier isn't all that bad and Anthony's quite enjoying himself. But Graham Greene is determined to throw a wrench into the whole plan and puts this character up to a challenge. England Made Me explores the moral twists that we all face everyday but few are forced to defend for their lives.
