Robert Harris’s 2014 thriller An Officer and a Spy brings to life the scandal that mesmerized the world at the turn of the twentieth century, the Dreyfus Affair. Robert Harris tells a tale of uncanny timeliness – a witch hunt, secret tribunals, out-of-control intelligence agencies, the fate of a whistle-blower – richly dramatized in this chillingly dark, hard-edged novel of conspiracy and espionage.
