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 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 physical 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 into the mystery of the murder, as well as her won identity and her family's dark secrets. Is Connolly innocent? And is she Bennie's unknown sister? It is not until Bennie takes the case to verdict that she will finally learn the truth which threatens to change her life.
A legal thriller, a courtroom drama, and an exploration of the emotional bonds that define our lives and those we love, Mistaken Identity is a masterly achievement that takes the legal thriller to a new level as it resoundingly confirms Lisa Scottoline's place as one of the premier writers of suspense fiction today.
