Thrilling but not a thriller,
This review is from: An Officer and a Spy (Hardcover)
My advise, if you do not know anything about the Dreyfus affair, then do not be tempted to do any research as Robert Harris has stuck
closely to the facts with only a few dramatic elements thrown in. Therefore, need i add, if you like suspense just read the book first. I like a story that stirs my emotions, especially where injustice is concerned and this hits the spot. I think this is the author's closest book to 'Enigma', one man trying to solve a puzzle and reveal a truth the authorities would prefer was not known.
My title for this review simply means that this does not contain too many of those thriller elements such as chases, shootouts etc but, it is still a thrilling engrossing read and I wish I had not read it so fast. Best book I've read in years. If you like Alan Furst, you will like this.
