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.
