«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.»

The Times

«Harris’ retelling of the Dreyfus case is as taut and exciting as anything by Forsyth or Follet.»

Guardian

«Menace and suspense twist tight in a narrative of tremendous tension.»

Sunday Times
