Publisher Comments:

Is evil born in us—or is it bred? That is the question at the heart of this penetrating novel from blockbuster New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline

 

Bennie Rosato looks exactly like her identical twin, Alice Connelly, but the darkness in Alices soul makes them two very different women. Or at least thats what Bennie believes—until she finds herself buried alive at the hands of her twin.

 

“So engaging you cant help but read it in one sitting.”—Seattle Post-Intelligencer

 

Meanwhile, Alice takes over Bennies life, impersonating her at work and even seducing her boyfriend in order to escape the deadly mess she has made of her own life. But Alice underestimates Bennie and the evil she has unleashed in her twins psyche. Soon Bennie, in her determination to stay alive long enough to exact revenge, must face the twisted truth that she is more like Alice than she could have ever imagined…and by the novels shocking conclusion, Bennie finds herself engaged in a war she cannot win—with herself. With its blistering speed, vivid characters, and perplexing moral questions, Think Twice is a riveting emotional thriller that will keep readers breathless until the very last page.

Review:

"Bestseller Scottoline's 13th novel centered on the all-female Philadelphia law firm headed by Bennie Rosato (after Lady Killer) offers contrived situations and paper-thin characters on top of a premise that strains credibility. After Bennie's evil identical twin sister, Alice Connelly, drugs her and leaves her to die, buried in a remote farm field, Alice takes advantage of her physical resemblance to Bennie to assume her identity at the law firm as well as gain access to her wealth and, eventually, her ex-boyfriend. Many will wonder why the ruthless Alice didn't kill Bennie outright, leaving open the possibility that her victim will escape and attempt to foil her scheme. With authors like Lisa Unger proving that intelligent plotting and page-turning aren't incompatible, this tired effort is unlikely to win Scottoline new converts. 500,000 first printing; author tour. (Mar.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Sorry, fellow Scottoline fans. This one disappoints. To make the story line work, the personalities of characters we know and love, Mary and Bennie, are modified in ways that simply don't make sense. This would be a perfectly great thriller for a new reader of Scottoline, but not for us long-time followers.
