    Bad Twin is the highly-anticipated new novel by acclaimed mystery writer Gary Troup. Bad Twin was delivered to the publisher just days before Troup boarded Oceanic Flight 815, which was lost in flight from Sydney, Australia to Los Angeles in September 2004. He remains missing and is presumed dead.

    Overall

    This has to be one of the worst books I have ever read. The "detective" never does any detecting. He simply makes guesses with no evidence. He never asks the most obvious questions. All the answers just fall into his lap without him even trying. And the most laughable part? Literally every woman he meets wants to have sex with him. All he has to do is meet them and they simply can't resist him. Even to the point of one character sacrificing her career because of the love she feels for him after spending a few hours on a plane. My guess is the "author" (no surprise he kept his real identity a secret) is simply projecting his fantasies onto a fictional character.

    Do yourself a favor and stear clear of this one.

    It is not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades, and carrion eaters start to gather, picking over the bones of the dead and fighting for the spoils of the soon-to-be dead. Now in the Seven Kingdoms, as the human crows assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and dangerous new alliances are formed, while surprising faces, some familiar, others only just appearing, are seen emerging from an ominous twilight of past struggles and chaos to take up the challenges ahead.

    Overall

    I, like everyone else, am very disappointed by the change of reader. I was so excited and full of anticipation for this audio book but the reader is so bad that I found it hard to enjoy. Like an earlier reviewer I found it hard to keep track of who was speaking because the characters all sound the same. Part of what made the first three books so great was the wonderful voices given tothe characters by Mr. Dotrice. This reader barely tries to distiguish one character from another. You would think he would have taken a little time to listen to some of the earlier books before recording this one so he could at least pronounce the names the same.

    Bummer.
