By day, Ella works as a buttoned-up attorney on some of the city's most grueling cases. By night, she pursues her passion for singing in the darkest clubs of Manhattan.
No one knows her secret, not even Charlotte, the younger sister she practically raised. But it seems she's not the only one in the family with something to hide. When Charlotte announces she's sold her first novel, Ella couldn't be more thrilled...until she gets a call that her sister's gone missing.
Ella starts investigating with the help of Detective Gabriel Velasquez, an old flame in the NYPD, and what she finds is shocking. If art imitates life, then her sister's novel may contain details of her real-life affairs. And any one of her lovers could be involved in her disappearance.
Desperate to bring Charlotte home, Ella works through her list of suspects, matching fictitious characters with flesh-and-blood men. But will it be too late to save the sister she only thought she knew?

I have enjoyed Adam Mitzner's books in the past and the basic principle of this book is very good. However, the end was not really surprising and I was surprised at the explicit sex scenes. They did not help the story and were not necessary. I was disappointed in general.

Sleeping With The Enemy... Murder She Wrote !!
This novel had me on the edge of my seat trying to figure out which characters are real life and which are from Charlotte's imagination. You see, Charlotte had sold her first novel which she gave a copy to her sister Ella to read. Very shortly thereafter Charlotte went missing. After Charlotte had been missing a couple of days, Ella decided to read the book. The book contained details that caused Ella to suspect that it was reflective of Charlotte's real-life love affairs which Ella knew nothing about. Ella was hiding her own double life from Charlotte. Which one of Charlotte's lovers could be involved in her disappearance?
The characters are developed well enough and the three different perspectives provides some insight into what others are thinking which adds to the mystery. Suspend disbelief and enjoy because this is definitely one of Adam Mitzner's best.
Erin Bennett’s performance is great. Her voice is well suited for this novel and she performs the different characters very well.

Enjoyed both the writing and the excellent narration. This book has an interesting way of telling the story from the murdered victim, to the narrator sister to the murderer themselves!
