    Glenfiddich Inn, a novel by Alan Geik, is set in WWI era Boston, New York and Scotland. It embraces stock market scams, love affairs, and the first trials with radio—a magical new technology destined to soon connect the world in ways never before imagined.

    Danger was in the air—and German spies on the pier—when the ocean liner RMS Lusitania left New York City on May 1,1915 for Liverpool, England. Seven days later, a German U-boat torpedo sank the ship —1,198 people perished, including 128 Americans.  The course was set for the U.S. to later enter the most terrifying and destructive war known to mankind up to that time.

    Just as the characters in this story are transformed and scarred by these overpowering events, so was a generation of men and women who soon after changed the world; Franklin Roosevelt, Churchill, Walt Disney, Stalin, Hitler, Marie Curie, Eleanor Roosevelt, Ernest Hemingway, Albert Einstein, and Charlie Chaplin, just to name a few.
