About this book
The second in Marias's "Your Face Tomorrow" trilogy, which began with "Fever & Spear". This brilliant and audacious book takes us even deeper into the dark world of Jacques Deza, as his relationship with his shadowy boss, Bertram Tupra, becomes increasingly disconcerting. 'One of the best minds in fiction today.' "Independent"
Having left Spain after the break-up of his marriage, Jacques Deza has allowed a friend to talk him into working for an MI6-like organisation run by the enigmatic Bertram Tupra. Deza's role is a seemingly innocuous one: he is to observe and comment on the behaviour of certain people.
