Dead Ringerby Lisa Scottoline
Synopses & Reviews
Lawyer Bennie Rosato is fighting the battle of her life — against her own twin. The action starts innocently enough, with a stolen wallet, but in no time events escalate, and Alice Connelly wreaks havoc that can be created only by a dead ringer.
Connelly tries to destroy Bennie's law firm, Rosato & Associates, and then strikes at her very heart — which just happens to be otherwise engaged by a handsome, hunky stranger with the perfect amount of chest hair.
But when a brutal murder occurs, Bennie realizes that the stakes have turned deadly. And the face of evil looks like her own.
"Some of this has the air of melodrama, recounted here as a set of facts. It's the Edgar-winning Scottoline's gift that she can spin this straw into the gold of a fast-paced page-turner filled with engaging characters and plenty of suspense." Providence Journal
