IN THE HUNT FOR A SPY, HE EXPOSED A CONSPIRACY

***Winner of the 2014 Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction***

Paris, 1895: an army officer, Georges Picquart, watches a convicted spy, Alfred Dreyfus, being publicly humiliated in front of a baying crowd.

Dreyfus is exiled for life to Devil's Island; Picquart is promoted to run the intelligence unit that tracked him down.

But when Picquart discovers that secrets are still being handed over to the Germans, he is drawn into a dangerous labyrinth of deceit and corruption that threatens not just his honour but his life...

A breathtaking historical spy thriller from Robert Harris, author of Munich, Conclave and the acclaimed Cicero trilogy

"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)
