What are the best Graham Greene novels?

I'm reading 'The Quiet American' and it is great. What other novels of his are worth a read?

    Because you spend so much time in R&S you might like "The Power and the Glory," or "The Heart of the Matter," because the have explicit religious themes.

    Most reports and reviews of Greene's life refer to this Russian roulette "rumour". In fact it is pruported that the essay "The Revolver in the Corner Cupboard" is about his experimentation with this "game". It seems like a lot of the information is based on Greene's claims he did this. I could not find any confirmed verifications by anyone else who had actually witnessed it. Opinions vary as to why he was motivated to do this - depression, boredom, experimentation. However, Michael Sheldens biography discredits Greene's own claims that he did play Russian Roulette though so it is quite difficult to answer your question.

    I loved The Heart of The Matter; I would certainly recommend that.
