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.

This is the first book that I have read by this author. I am now half way through the CD's and am astounded at the character build up, the emotional grasp of the characters, and the titilation as you are left with at each chapter. For instance, at the end of one chapter, a character is in a dark garage aware that someone is there with her. Several chapters later in the beginning of the chapter, this same character is now in a concrete tomb,trying to claw her way out and not knowing why she is there. I am already looking for more books by this author. I like her main character --strong, sharp, intelligent, sensitive, and kind. I can't wait to listen to more of her books. I recommend this book to highly.

Good book, bad narrator

This book was enjoyable despite the droning voice of the narrator. I found it difficult to get interested as it was read in a bit of a monotone voice. The narrator got a bit more animated as the story went on, but my advice is to listen to the preview and decide if you can stand it. It almost ruined the book for me and unfortunately I won't pick a book narrated by this person again. Having said all that...the book itself was enjoyable enough.
