Publisher's Summary

Returning home from a trip to Paris, Boston medical examiner Maura Isles confronts a nightmarish scene. Police cruisers line her street and slumped in a car at the end of Maura's driveway is a dead woman, her head bloodied by a gunshot wound. Cops and neighbors gape at her as she approaches. Only when Maura looks at the victim does she understand why everyone is so shocked by her arrival. The dead woman looks exactly like Maura. Within a week, the DNA lab delivers a stunning verdict: the dead woman is Maura's twin. A twin she never knew she had. Detective Jane Rizzoli, now eight months pregnant, tackles the case as chief investigator. But for Maura, this murder is far more personal and frightening.

Needlessly Complicated; Still Good

After the very weak The Sinner; the number three book in the Rizzoli and Isles series; book four Body Double was a nice recovery. The book goes into a great deal of detail about the genetic background of Moira Isles, her parents, as well as the underside of private adoption in general; hers in particular. A minor character in the book, in her own understated way, comes off as one of the toughest, most heroic characters in any book. An example of the courage of ordinary human beings just living and doing their best. I do have a couple of complaints; there are far too many instances of brain rot where experienced law enforcement officers take forever to ascertain simple facts; facts I figured out almost as soon as I heard them. In addition Anna Fields, she's an excellent reader normally but she continually pronounced Rizzoli, Ritz-oli; as many times as the name is used in the book it became really irritating. Still, this is one of the better books in the series, if you like unrealistic, overly detailed, but still well written police procedurals, you could do worse.

Great Book Bad Narration

The story is another twist that was unexpected. The narrator was horrible. It was so hard for me to finish listening to her. I am going to stay away from any books read by her.
