    Review quote
    "The fact that this novel is seriously riveting is a testament to Robert Harris's storytelling power; he conjures knuckle-blanching suspense from a very well-known piece of history." -- BOOKS OF THE YEAR The Times "Harris' retelling of the Dreyfus case is as taut and exciting as anything by Forsyth or Follet." -- BOOKS OF THE YEAR Guardian "Menace and suspense twist tight in a narrative of tremendous tension." -- BOOKS OF THE YEAR Sunday Times "Superb ... Harris demonstrates his unique ability to recreate historical events and turn them into spellbinding thriller ... Written with scalpel-like precision and the elegance we expect of Harris, there is a passion here that justifies calling it a masterpiece." -- BOOKS OF THE YEAR Daily Mail "A brilliant retelling of a scandal that became one of the most famous miscarriages of justice ... the most gripping book I've read this year." -- BOOKS OF THE YEAR Mail on Sunday
