Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“An awfully enjoyable romp. Taylor writes clearly and transparently, leaving nothing to abstraction. The book moves along at such an admirable clip that it’s hard to believe it won’t carry on without you if you dare put it down.”

—Toronto Star

“A literate thriller.…Today, the Dreyfus Affair continues to serve as a bracing reminder …that we dare not have blind faith in the willingness of our leaders to defend our most cherished rights and freedoms. Taylor’s engaging novel, in creating a detailed historical world, reminds us of that ever-present danger.”

—Globe and Mail

“Taylor’s twisting plot is rich in romance and disturbing in its implications about the fragility of human rights.”

—Elle

Enjoying a well-ordered life at the height of the Belle Epoque in France, bourgeois lawyer Franois Dubon finds his peace shattered when a widow entreats him to rescue an army captain who has been wrongly convicted of spying. By the award-winning author of Madame Proust and the Kosher Kitchen.
