The Royal Economic Society of Friends of the Country of Tenerife (RSEAPT) will host on Thursday, July 25, the presentation of the book "The Eagle of San Juan", by the Grancanarian writer Francisco Estupiñán. From 7:00 p.m. at the headquarters of the Economy, admission is free.

The protagonist of the book is the sailor and Mason Gerardo Martel, whose adventure begins on July 18, 1936, the day of the military uprising, when, finding himself in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, he helps, by chance, to bring Carmen Polo and her daughter safely out of Spanish territory. From then on, a series of events takes place which leads to his role as the trusted man of Minister Blas Pérez during the post-war period, a position which he takes advantage of to collaborate with English Freemasonry, helping the British to learn details of the meeting between Franco and Hitler in Hendaye.
