About dark family secrets, a long-lost love affair and a multi-million pound gaming business lie at the heart of Iain Banks' fabulous new novel. The Wopuld family built their fortune on a board game called Empire! - now a wildly successful computer game. So successful the American Spraint Corp wants to buy the Wopulds out. Young renegade Alban, who has been evading the family tentacles for the last few years, thinks Spraint should be treated with suspicion - but he also has other things on his mind. What drove his mother to take her own life? And is he yet over Sophie, his bewitching cousin and teenage love, who'll be present at the forthcoming family gathering - part birthday party, part Extraordinary General Meeting - at Garbadale, their highland castle? Full of his trademark warmth, humanity and ingenuity, THE STEEP APPROACH TO GARBADALE is Iain Banks' most compelling novel since THE CROW ROAD.

I doubt the person from the publisher who wrote the description of the characters read the book. Alban's last name is most definitely not Wopould.
