Description
"I wish nobody ever requested anything from me, no advice, no favors, or suggestions." Thus begins Baile y sueo, the second volume of Maria's "tu ro stro manana" , and most likely the pinnacle of his works. Here we continue the story started in 'Foebre u lanza", of Jaime or Jacobo or Jacques Deza, a Spaniard belonging to a nameless group, employee of the MI6 or British Secret Service, whose task and "gift" is to see what people will do in the future, or to know today how their faces will look tomorrow.

display_description "No deberiá contar nunca nada", empieza por decir el narrador de esta historia, Jaime o Jacobo o Jacques Deza. Y sin embargo su tarea va a ser la contraria, contarlo todo, hasta lo au?n no sucedido, al ser contratado por un grupo sin nombre que durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial creo? el M16, el Servicio Secreto brita?nico, y que au?n funciona hoy en di?a de manera tal vez degradada, o acaso ya bajo diferentes auspicios. El protagonista regresa a Inglaterra, en cuya Universidad de Oxford habi?a ensen?ado muchos an?os atra?s, "por no se seguir cerca de mi mujer mientras ella se me alejaba". Y alli? descubre que, segu?n Sir Peter Wheeler, viejo profesor retirado "con demasiados recuerdos", e?l tambie?n pertenece al reducido grupo de personas que posee un "don" o maldicio?n: el de ver lo que la gente hara? en el futuro, el de conocer hoy co?mo sera?n sus rostros man?ana, el de saber quie?nes nos traicionara?n o nos sera?n leales. First part of a trilogy. Jaime Deza is in London, leaving his wife in Madrid. Sir Peter Wheeler, an old friend, and a retired Oxford don, introduces him to the head of a secret government bureau. The bureau tries to find people with the ability to see past other people's facades and predict their future behaviour. It seems that Deza has this handy facility -- however, as he begins to exercise it, he has some ethical concerns.
