Paul Artisan, P.I. is a new version of an old breed: a righter of wrongs, someone driven to get to the bottom of things. Too bad his usual cases are of the boring malpractice and fraud variety. Until now.

His new gig turns on the disappearance of one of a pair of twins, adult scions of a rich but tragedy-prone family. The missing twin, a charismatic poster-boy for irresponsibility, has spent his life daring people to hate him, punishing himself endlessly for his screw-ups and misdeeds. The other twin, Artisan's client, is dutiful and resentful in equal measure, bewildered that his other half could have turned out so badly, and wracked by guilt at his inability to reform him. He has a more practical reason, as well, for wanting his brother found: their crazy father, in failing health and with guilty secrets of his own, will not divide the family fortune until both siblings are accounted for.

But it isn't just a fortune that's at stake here. Truth itself is up for grabs, as the detective's discoveries seem to challenge everything we think we know about identity, human nature, and family. As Artisan journeys across the globe to track down the bad twin, he seems to have moved into a mirror-world where friends and enemies have a way of looking very much alike. The P.I. may have his long-awaited chance to put his courage and ideals to the test, but if he doesn't get to the bottom of this case soon, it could very well cost him his life.

Troup's long-awaited Bad Twin is a suspenseful novel that touches on many powerful themes, including the consequence of vengeance, the power of redemption, and where to turn when all seems lost.

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.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marcia | 2/16/2014

    " Is it possible to give a book negative stars? this book stunk. I mean really stunk. it was a perfect example of how not to write a mystery novel. I love lost, but this book just stunk (and the language was unnecessarily foul too). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 2/10/2014

    " I gave this one three stars because it's possible I may have a LOST addiction, and this is a tie in. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sheryl | 2/8/2014

    " I read this book to help during the Lost summer break. It was ok. If I weren't such a Lost fanatic, I would have disliked this book more. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gevera Bert | 1/29/2014

    " This book was boring and badly written. I could not finish it. If it has any wonderful clues to any LOST mysteries, they are going to have to stay lost. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yasmin | 1/29/2014

    " As a fan of Lost, I picked this up, not expecting much, but found myself actually enjoying the story. It's a good, quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James | 1/27/2014

    " Quick read, detective story. I read it because I thought it would have clues to TV show Lost (one of the characters on the show was reading a manuscript of this novel). Turns out this story has nothing really to do with the show but not a bad story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Linda | 1/26/2014

    " Bad book! Very bad book! Not only is it poorly written but it does very little to enlighten LOST fans (and why is the author's name an anagram for purgatory when they've assured us time and time again that the castaways of Oceanic flight 815 are NOT in purgatory? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa Thumma | 1/20/2014

    " I have to say that this book was a disappointment. I love the show Lost so a spin off book had me expecting so much more. The story was so dull to the point that I couldn't care less as to what happened next. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tori | 1/18/2014

    " I read this because I'm a Lost fanatic, and this book is part of the Lost experience, but really it wasn't great and had almost nothing to do with the show, although it is an okay read even as a book independent from Lost. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tersa | 12/9/2013

    " This is a great book. We are still trying to figure out how it relates to "Lost". Maybe I should read it again, now that I've seen more and know more of what is going on. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rose | 11/27/2013

    " Incredibly easy read. Horrible detective novel. It was free at some book fair and i was just getting into Lost and I had run out of reading material, so leave me alone, okay!?! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 11/25/2013

    " LOST LOST LOST LOST "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hawkgrrrl | 11/25/2013

    " A pretty engaging novel based on the Lost TV series, but without much overlap (no character overlap, just industries). A good beach book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Al Tarancón | 8/17/2013

    " Novela escrita por uno de los pasajeros del vuelo Oceanic 815 que se estrello en Septiembre 2004. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christy | 7/30/2013

    " Pretty good. Enjoyed the LOST references like Mr. Cluck's, the Hanso Foundation and Oceanic. Ending/resolution seemed a little hurried. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Khelani | 1/9/2013

    " LOST!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie | 11/13/2012

    " one of the good things that came out of the very confusing Lost Experience. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Isabelle | 11/11/2012

    " I picked this up because I'm a fan of Lost. I was a little disappointed as it ended up having not much to do with Lost. I quick, easy read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debbie Howell | 9/26/2012

    " So-so mystery, but if you're into "Lost," the big takeaway is that things are not always as they seem--it's hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys, and sometimes you have to stop, question your assumptions, and recalculate. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bekah | 8/1/2012

    " Predictable in a bad way. It was painful to read. Thanks Stephen King!!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathleen | 5/20/2012

    " not bad for a Lost tie-in novel -note minimal tie-in with series "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Saresse Fortman | 3/30/2012

    " Ok, but shed no light on Lost, unless I'm totally dense (a distinct possibility). "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chris Ball | 11/6/2011

    " Lame. Damn you Lost for suckering me into buying this! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lorna | 6/13/2011

    " TV tie-in from "Lost". Different, but I liked it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Simone | 5/5/2011

    " Saw the end coming a mile away! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nick | 3/20/2011

    " This book was not good and did no make good on it's promise of giving me greater understanding of LOST. In fact, why didn't I give this book one star. Oh yeah, I think I learned some greek mythology or something from the book. I've forgotten it by now. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lorna | 3/3/2011

    " TV tie-in from "Lost". Different, but I liked it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Audrey | 12/9/2010

    " AMAZING BOOK! lots of inside info of lost hidden messages all that good stuff!! didn;t really undertand the ending and there could have been more lost refrernces but a great book for even a non lost fan! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 James | 9/26/2010

    " This book could have been so much more, but ended up being a hastily written novel to tie in with the Lost ARG game going on at the time. The plot was thin, and the characters were thinner. That said, the entertaining pieces were the *small* parts that linked the book the overall arc of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 ASTRID | 9/18/2010

    " Essential reading for fans of LOST. A quick, easy read with a few little 'clues' and numerous (although some not overly obvious) references to the TV series' storyline. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Melissa | 5/16/2010

    " Pathetic! Not even worth reading for the biggest Lost fan, I'd say. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Al | 1/24/2010

    " Novela escrita por uno de los pasajeros del vuelo Oceanic 815 que se estrello en Septiembre 2004. "
