Rezension bezieht sich auf: An Officer and a Spy (Kindle Edition)
Never has a historical novel been as timely as this one. Anti-Semitism is looming everywhere, even in France where jews are taking refuge in Israel. The Military Establishment is still stubborn enough to cling to mistakes when everyone else is aware that the experts have profoundly erred or lied. Spying for money or dishonorable motives is rampant if only mostly undetected. Robert Harris describes these attitudes in his historical novel the realism of which is frightening. Although we know the outcome, Harris manages to to keep us enthralled in gripping suspense.
