It is 1963. When General Franco, right-wing leader of Spain, decides to take a short break in the small fishing town of Los Tidos, incognito, of course, a catalogue of events is set in motion that could never have been foreseen by his long-suffering security team... The outward appearance of Los Tidos is deceptive. Within the bougainvillea-clad exterior live a rich cast of characters, some of whom have love on their minds; others, murder. While local carpenter Jaime tries with limited success to find love using a dating agency, his friend Pepe plots to poison his harridan wife, and town drunk Uncle Pablo causes mischief wherever he goes. Pabloa€™s dog, Waldorf, becomes entangled in the poisoning plot with near-calamitous consequences and a honey trap intended to kidnap General Franco goes disastrously wrong when the honey in question mistakes Uncle Pablo for the Spanish dictator. And all the time, Los Tidosa€™ priest, Father Miguel, is worrying about where he might find two saintly figures for the towna€™s Feast of the Two Virgins, an event only celebrated in Los Tidos every 25 years... Set against the backdrop of 1960s Spain, The Tale of the Two Virgins is a rollicking tale of murderous plans, mistaken identities and convoluted affairs of the heart. It is ultimately a light, humorous read that will appeal to a wide range of readers.exclaimed Garcia bringing his fist down on the dashboard. a#39;The criminals are returning to the scene of their crime!a#39; The effect of these sudden noises, Garciaa#39;s exclamation and the noise of his fist crashing down on the plastic dashboard, ... a#39; Silence, a#39; he snapped at Ruiz fixing him with a glare through his cracked sunglasses.
