Crack trial lawyer Bennie Rosato is called to the local prison to consult with Alice Connolly, a woman accused of committing cold-blooded murder and who wants Bennie to represent her at the trial. Bennie has no intention of taking the case, until she comes face to face with Connolly: the incarcerated woman is a dead ringer for Bennie and claims to be her long-lost twin sister.
Bennie takes on the case against her better judgement, and soon she is plunging headlong into not just a murder trial, but the dark mystery of her own identity. She then discovers a dangerous cover-up that lies at the centre of Alice Connolly's case, and plenty more surprises await her . . .
Award-winning author Lisa Scottoline builds from a startling opening to breathless suspense for a wonderfully engrossing, truly thrilling read.
