Publisher's Summary

Returning home from a trip to Paris, Boston medical examiner Maura Isles confronts a nightmarish scene. Police cruisers line her street and slumped in a car at the end of Maura's driveway is a dead woman, her head bloodied by a gunshot wound. Cops and neighbors gape at her as she approaches. Only when Maura looks at the victim does she understand why everyone is so shocked by her arrival. The dead woman looks exactly like Maura. Within a week, the DNA lab delivers a stunning verdict: the dead woman is Maura's twin. A twin she never knew she had. Detective Jane Rizzoli, now eight months pregnant, tackles the case as chief investigator. But for Maura, this murder is far more personal and frightening.

    "wake me up"

    the reading was excrutiating there was no emotion just this monotonous drone & just too detailed. I finished it only because I paid for it!

    "Body Double"

    The reader sounds like she is talking in her sleep! She barely display ANY emotion at all. I am sure that the story is okay, but the reader makes it very difficult to get thru.

    "Awesome"

    This is one of the best books that I have listened to. She weaves three stories together and keeps you on your toes to the very end. I thought I had figured it out and boy, was I wrong. This was the first one of her books that I have read but won't be the last.

    "Excellent!"

    This was a terrific thriller. I had some difficulties accepting an advanced preganancy with one of the leads. Otherwise great story line definitely had me on the edge for a while.

    "A Grabber and a Keeper"

    This book hooked me from the get-go. The main character is tough and vulnerable. Guessing the "who-done-it" is only half the fun. A must hear from a seasoned audio-book listener. The narrator is especially talented and pleasant for the long haul.

    "Great listen, lots of twists"

    I like mysteries and this one had surprises all the way through. The characters were interesting, and I could not put it down. I though the narrator did a good job; I specifically liked the voice of Detective Jane Rizzoli; the Boston accent reminded me of my years there.

    The main character is a medical examiner, so there is quite a bit of gore; but it is presented clinically, so there is some detachment there. Good writing, fast paced plot and strong characters. What more could you want?

    "Double vision"

    This book has some nice interesting twists and suspenses. I had been expecting the plot to be predictable but was pleasantly surprised. The surprises make sense in hind-sight, and not outrageous. The character development is good, and the prose is easy on the ears.
