In 1898, a Spanish regiment, the so-called "last of the Philippines", is under siege in the town of Baler, harried by a group of revolutionaries trying to overthrow colonial rule. This historical event is the setting chosen by Juan Manuel de Prada for an extraordinarily well-researched and skilfully written historical novel that features real characters from the period and a gallery of fictional figures who fit perfectly into their world.
Morir bajo tu piel is a story of adventures and epic battles, both physical and intellectual, between entrenched foes.
Juan Manuel de Prada’s literary career: excellent novels that entertain a large audience.
Supported by an extraordinary degree of research and engaging characters, Prada takes us back to a little known period of history that has thus far been generally ignored in contemporary fiction.
