Brilliant - the best yet.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: An Officer and a Spy (Hardcover)
I've enjoyed all of Robert Harris' novels, but this is his best. The whole Drefus Case is brought vividly to life in a novel which never flags - injustice, twists and turns, and appalling corruption at the highest levels of the French army and French intelligence. Historically, and in this novel, one man (Colonel Picquart) begins the challenge to the injustice committed, and so the story develops. The Parisian background feels very real, and we accompany characters who are so well drawn, that we can't avoid becoming engaged in the whole process. Brilliant !
