Podrobný popis:

Publikace: An Officer and Spy - Robert Harris. They lied to protect their country. He told the truth to save it. A

gripping historical thriller from the bestselling author of

FATHERLAND.

January 1895. On a freezing morning in the heart of Paris, an army

officer, Georges Picquart, witnesses a convicted spy, Captain

Alfred Dreyfus, being publicly humiliated in front of twenty

thousand spectators baying ‘Death to the Jew!’

The officer is rewarded with promotion: Picquart is made the French

army’s youngest colonel and put in command of ‘the Statistical

Section’ – the shadowy intelligence unit that tracked down

Dreyfus.

The spy, meanwhile, is given a punishment of medieval cruelty:

Dreyfus is shipped off to a lifetime of solitary confinement on

Devil’s Island – unable to speak to anyone, not even his guards,

his case seems closed forever.

But gradually Picquart comes to believe there is something rotten

at the heart of the Statistical Section. When he discovers another

German spy operating on French soil, his superiors are oddly

reluctant to pursue it. Despite official warnings, Picquart

persists, and soon the officer and the spy are in the same

predicament…

Narrated by Picquart, An Officer and a Spy is a compelling

recreation of a scandal that became the most famous miscarriage of

justice in history. Compelling, too, are the echoes for our modern

world: an intelligence agency gone rogue, justice corrupted in the

name of national security, a newspaper witch-hunt of a persecuted

minority, and the age-old instinct of those in power to cover-up

their crimes. Publikace: An Officer and Spy - Robert Harris. Intelligence officer Georges Picquart watches as Jewish army officer Alfred Dreyfus is convicted of treason. Months later, he uncovers a trail of corruption that leads to the highest ranks of the French army and government, and that calls Dreyfus's guilt into question. Based on the real-life scandal that shocked the world, this is a mesmerising thriller from the bestselling author of FATHERLAND. '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.'
