How much can one person take? At which point will a good person break and cross the line. An interesting story of identical twins, one evil, one good, or is she?
Lisa's stories for me are good until about 1/3 through. Then her characters go into superhero mode and become no longer believable. I hate that she has sloppy editing...in this particular book, a gun is held at a person's forehead, but is at her temple about 4 sentences later, and then this person is shot in the shoulder later. This is just one small example of the inconsistencies in her detail. I know she is very popular, but I am not a big fan.
A real page turner!!!
I'm not sure why I keep reading Lisa Scottoline. Could be for the unintended humor in her books with their "pulse-pounding" action. I had not read any of her Rosato and Associates series so I'm not sure about the back story for this book. However, in this installment, lawyer Bennie Rosato's evil identical twin, Alice, tries to assume Bennie's identity to steal her money. Alice either murders or tries to murder several people, including Bennie who is taken out of action by being buried in a box (I won't spoil how she gets out; it's too priceless). Alice is able to get pretty far along in her quest for cash once she gets all of Bennie's ID and finds her Rolodex (lol!) with passwords for online banking etc. This last is probably too true to life. Just a few obstacles like Bennie's dog (kick down basement stairs) and boyfriend (go for it!) get in her way. I have to say, Alice is a much more interesting and funny character than Bennie herself. From the ending it sounds like we'll get to hang with Alice in future books. Bennie comes out of her harrowing experience changed (or so she says) so maybe she'll be more fun in future. Enjoyable quick read if you don't expect it to be a serious thriller.
Interesting story about two twins, one feels that the other has had the life the first twin has had.. Try's to steal the second twin's life and isn't above killing to get it ... Average read although I must confess I was sorta hoping that the evil twin would make it
An interesting story about identical twins: one good, one evil. Evil tries to kill the good one and impersonates her. Quite a rollercoaster ride.
This book started as a real page turner, but took a bad turn and from becoming highly implausible became ridiculous
