This review is from: An Officer and a Spy (Kindle Edition)
I was familiar with the Dreyfus story so knew how roughly how this would end, but Robert Harris does an excellent job at maintaining the tension throughout the book. He also conveys the details of the hypocrisy in the army and anti-semitism that pervaded the affair, but showing the shades of grey and how people were culpable to different degrees.
The conclusion comes across in a piecemeal and slightly messy manner, but that is very much a reflection of how these things often wind up in real life. Overall a very good read.
