Gary Troup’s manuscript for Bad Twin
made its debut on ABC’s Lost
last night as the reading material of character Hugo “Hurley” Reyes. After he mentioned that he had found the manuscript in a suitcase, the conversation moved on, but it won’t be the last time Lost
fans will see the book.
Disney’s Hyperion Books, a sister company of ABC, will release Bad Twin on May 2
, under the assumption that Troup, who presumably perished on the show in the crash of Oceanic Flight 815, had already delivered a copy to his publisher. In reality, Hyperion hired a well-known mystery author to pen the novel, about a wealthy heir who searches for a long-lost evil sibling.
