Stranger than Fiction

The latest plot twist in the the Claude Allen story is that it might not have been him that did the swindle but his identical twin brother Floyd, described as the one who “kept running into bad times.”

The “evil twin” theory may work in a soap opera, but as an ertswhile fiction writer, I can safely say that my several readers would kill me if I tried that hoary old warhorse in Small Town Boys, even if it does have two sets of identical twins.

What’s next; checking for pods in the basement?
