Thriller | Mystery Private Eye
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, and 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.
