Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A small commune in the French Pyrenees has been thrown into turmoil by the revelation that the Auberge des Deux Vallees has been bought by an English couple and not the Mayor's brother-in-law as expected. The Mayor wants to force the new owners out, but he hasn't reckoned on one of his men, whose conscience leads his politics.
