    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

    When Sawyer (on 'Lost' the TV show) was reading the manuscript of this book on a recent episode (3 May) he said it was a good story. Unfortunately, he never got to finish it - you'll have to watch the season 2 reruns to see why. When I found it was available here I just had to have it...ABCs marketing worked on me!

    As a Lostaholic, I was pleasantly surprised and even chuckled a few times at the references. I had not read any of the reviews so I didn't know about the connections to the show. I especially loved the references to Scot----...oops! Sorry, I don't want to give too much away! If you like 'Lost' the TV show, you'll love this book and the fascinating clues in it.

    It's a good old fashioned detective story that stands on it's own so even if you don't watch 'Lost' it's still a good listen.

    Corrupt liaisons between criminal elements in Russian states and the world of legitimate finance in the West collide in le Carré's intimate portrait of two families: one Russian, the other English; one trading illicit goods, the other laundering the profits; one betrayed by a son-in-law, the other betrayed, and redeemed, by a son.

    With all the twists and turns, colorful characters, and international locations this would make a wonderful movie. I can easily picture Ewan McGregor in the role of Oliver and Sir Sean Connery in the role of "Tiger."

    In 1918, on the small Scots peninsula of Glenelg, the death of the clan chieftain marks the end of a way of life. With the new chieftain comes the cruelty of the Highland Clearances. The Rose family is transported to Australia where they witness the emergence of a self-governing country from a convict colony. The MacCrimmons are among hopeful immigrants who travel by raft down the Ohio River to settle in far-off lands.

    Paula says: "A truly epic saga."
    "Bringing the Clearances home..."
    Overall

    As an American-Scot with some knowledge of the Clearances, I found the story to be amazingly compelling. I was wrapped up in the lives of all three families and frequently found myself laughing, gasping, and sometimes crying out loud. The Clearances were a horrific time but from the surviving descendants was born a fierce pride and determination to survive. America, Canada, and Australia all benefitted from the Scots immigrants who arrived on their shores. It helped make our great nations what they are today.
    I recommend this book to all those with Scots heritage. I think it would make a great mini-series (it's too long for one movie!).
