If the brilliance of Heart of Darkness lies in Conrad's ability to express the unspoken truths of imperialism in Africa, The Secret Sharer captures the spirit of the times a little closer to Conrad's own home. Wedding the suspense of the detective novel to an exploration of a tense and troubled period of great social upheaval, the novella centers on a tale of intrigue set in London's political underground. Presented together in this Collector's Edition, Heart of Darkness and The Secret Agent provide a satisfying glimpse of the range and power of Conrad's artistic vision.
