5.0 out of 5 stars Book of the Year, 11 Nov 2013
This review is from: An Officer and a Spy (Hardcover)
Brilliant. Without doubt the best Robert Harris book to date. It's a book written from the viewpoint of Colonel Georges Picquart who ties all the various strands of this historic case together. The writing is absolutely superb and totally immerses the reader into Paris in the late 19th century with all the smells and colour of the time, city and political culture. Its theme is timeless with its secret dossiers and political subterfuge. I recommend this book as the best of the year.

I couldn't agree more and this novel has kept me from my sleep! I feel it is Harris's best novel to date and have bought a copy for my brother as a Christmas gift as he has a special interest in the Dreyfus case and the era. Harris really knows how to ratchet up the tension and the spectre of a "dodgy dossier" really comes alive.
