Synopsis: With this much-anticipated third and last volume of Tu rostro mañana, the work is hailed as one of the literary highlights of our time. The novel kicks off with the premise that the death of another, any other be it our workmate, brother, father, lover, yes, even our child, is preferable to our own. Jacques, the main character, discovers that underneath the seemingly calm Western world there is an underlying need of betrayal and violence that inoculates us all.

Spanish Description:
Uno no lo desea, pero prefiere siempre que muera el que esta a su lado, en una mision o una batalla, en una escuadrilla aerea o bajo un bombardeo o en la trinchera cuando las habia, en un asalto callejero o en un atraco a una tienda o en un secuestro de turistas, en un terremoto, una explosion, un atentado, un incendio, da lo mismo: el companero, el hermano, el padre o incluso el hijo, aunque sea nino. Y tambien la amada, tambien la amada, antes que uno mismo. Asi arranca Veneno y sombra y adios, el tercer y ultimo volumen de Tu rostro manana, la grandiosa novela de Javier Marias que, por fin completa, y como ya ha anticipado la critica extranjera, se revela como una de las cumbres literarias de nuestro tiempo. El narrador y protagonista, Jacques o Jaime o Jacobo Deza, acaba por conocer aqui los inesperados rostros de quienes lo rodean y tambien el suyo propio, y descubre que, bajo el mundo mas o menos apaciguado en que vivimos los occidentales, siempre late una necesidad de traicion y violencia que se nos inocula como un veneno.
