Publisher's Summary

Lately, Bennie Rosato has her eye focused firmly on the bottom line, especially since she has three dedicated young associates and a very pregnant secretary on her payroll; so she takes a professional risk, charging into a class action lawsuit that could make, or break, her career.

Then her wallet goes missing. And Bennie's life goes crazy.

Someone is posing as the outspoken, blue-eyed, blond attorney and is wreaking havoc around town, apparently determined to destroy everything Bennie loves. Only one person can pull off this double deception: Bennie's identical twin sister, Alice Connelly. But as far as Bennie knows, Alice left Philly long ago and never looked back.

When events escalate into murder, the maverick lawyer realizes that the stakes are far greater than she feared. But Bennie Rosato refuses to be anyone's victim. To find the killer, she'll plunge headfirst into a life-and-death investigation that will bring her face to face with an evil darker, yet more familiar, than anything before.

Lisa Scottoline does it again! :)

A very good read! I have read all the Lisa Scottoline novels available in audio and I think they are wonderful! This book is no exception! Events which may or may not be related combine to create a complex and suspenseful tale of treachery and greed capped off with friendships old and new both growing and maturing as the characters grow and change. I think the reader is wonderful for this series! She does beautifully with the different dialects and languages and makes each character seem unique and individual! All in all very enjoyable!

Better and better

I love that Scottoline moves from character to character in her novels, giving each of her Philadelphia attorneys a chance to shine. Danger, a hint of romance, and lots of likeable characters, some of whom actually experienced growth drew me into the story. Rosenblat gives a good read, and this mystery just didn't seem long enough--I didn't want this treat to end so soon.

Not Your Typical 'Evil Twin' Story

You may be thinking what I was thinking. Who would use such an ancient (and silly) plot device??? Scottoline only uses her 'evil twin' as one thread of of many different plot strands to keep you thrilled. So *don't worry* the entire book is NOT only about an evil twin ruining her life. The biggest one being "My firm is going bankrupt!" (That twin girl is NOT helping!) she might add for a laugh. This writer does drama, law, and humor. You learn a bit of law, *laugh at the MANY comic thoughts that cross her character's lips or minds*. See above or another idea: about a "cursing diet." I've yet to listen to a Scottoline / Rosenblatt read book that was not a winning combination. Again, the author is not intending to win a Pulitzer but she does know how to entertain and she can actually make lawyers seem warm, fuzzy, and caring. Now THAT is a a difficult writing task at which she always succeeds.

One of My Favorites in the Series!!

This book gave good action, suspense, fast paced excitement, great court room scenes, as well as humor. There were times my blood boiled and times I was so upset with events that I wanted to scream. There also were times I felt mushy, happy and rallying for my home girl team, their financial plight, and their well deserved success. This novel included everything I want in a legal thriller.
On a side note... I seem to enjoy the books with Benny as the protagonist more than when Benny is missing or a side character. I love the other girls, but they just don’t have the umph of Benny. For example the free standing books with Mary or Judy are nice, but better when they are together, and best when Benny is the lead or heavily involved in the storyline. At least so far. Highly recommend.
