9780060187477: Mistaken Identity

Another riveting courtroom thriller from the female John Grisham.

Crack trial lawyer Bennie Rosato is called to the local prison to consult with Alice Connolly, a woman accused of committing cold-blooded murder and who wants Bennie to represent her at the trial. Bennie has no intention of taking the case, until she comes face to face with Connolly: the incarcerated woman is a dead ringer for Bennie – and claims to be her long-lost twin sister. Disbelieving but somehow convinced, Bennie takes on the case against her better judgement, and starts sniffing out the corruption and dangerous cover-up that lies at its centre.

Mistaken Identity builds from a startling opening to breathless suspense, the kind only bestselling author Lisa Scottoline can deliver.

Product Description:

Summoned to prison by a woman on a capital charge of murder, Bennie shockingly discovers that she has a twin sister, Alice Connolly. But Bennie isn't entirely convinced that she's her sister or that she's innocent of murder. . . Scottoline evokes the moral dilemmas of the defence lawyer, the hothouse violence of a women's prison and the intellectual excitement of putting together a defence from scratch.

Review:

With her sequence of novels about the Philadelphia law firm headed by defence lawyer Bennie Rosato, Lisa Scottoline has distinguished herself with suspenseful, violent action and sharp, intelligent courtroom scenes. Mistaken Idenitity sets the seal on that reputation. Bennie has always known that there was some mystery about her father--of whom she knows nothing but his name--and her dying mother is unable to tell her anything. That is until she takes the case of her life.

Summoned to prison by a woman on a capital charge of murder, Bennie discovers that she has a twin sister, Alice Connolly. Unless she can outwit a powerful conspiracy among police and prosecution, her sister will be found guilty and executed. What's more, Bennie isn't entirely convinced that she's her sister or that she's innocent of (among other things) murdering her policeman lover. If that isn't enough, killers draw in on both sisters. Scottoline evokes the moral dilemmas of the defence lawyer, the hothouse violence of a women's prison and the intellectual excitement of putting together a defence from scratch. --Roz Kaveney
