Publisher's Summary

Bennie Rosato, head of her own Philadelphia law firm, is a criminal attorney now specializing in police misconduct cases, and she's seen the noblest and most deviant aspects of human nature. But nothing can prepare her for the moment she enters a Philadelphia maximum-security prison to meet her new client, Alice Connolly, face to face. Accused of brutally murdering her lover, a highly decorated police detective, Connolly claims the police framed her. What shocks Bennie is that Connolly bears an uncanny resemblance to her. "Pleased to meet you. I'm your twin," Connolly tells the astonished lawyer.

But Bennie doesn't have a twin. Or does she? Connolly knows too many intimate details about Bennie's life and family for the resemblance to be just coincidental. Taking the case with the trial only a week away, Bennie plunges herself into the mystery of the murder, as well as her own identity and her family's dark secrets. It is not until Bennie takes the case to verdict that she will finally learn the truth, which threatens to change her life.

Talks too fast

Terrible recording by Kate Burton. Talks so fast it took arm away from story. Good thing recording was only 3 hours long.

Predictable

The book was good, but predictable and not much in the way of character development. I enjoyed the reader. Story was quite short.
