10 best books of January: the Monitor's picks

Here are the 10 books that the Monitor's book critics liked best among the January 2014 releases.

3. "An Officer and a Spy," by Robert Harris

of

Thriller writer Robert Harris returns to historical fiction with An Officer and a Spy, a tale of the true-life Dreyfus Affair in late 19th-century France, an episode with parallels to the Edward Snowden-NSA contemporary era. Harris sticks to the historical record employing a most effective trope: the secret diary later discovered to reveal the on-the-ground unfurling of events.
