Publisher's Summary

No birth announcement could top the headlines from the day Janie and Jack Perkins entered the world. As twins born to a mother in a coma - courtesy of a bullet from their father - the sensational story of their birth never quite died down. While Jack still craves the flash of a camera, Janie seeks sanctuary behind the lens - as a crime scene photographer.
Thanks to Janie's line of work, she's comfortable around gruesome murders. But when old photos of her mother's body arrive in the mail, they open deep-seated wounds and raise chilling new questions about who really was responsible for that deadly night.
Did Janie's father spend decades in jail as an innocent man? Did an infamous serial killer actually take her mother's life? With photos in hand, Janie brings the truth into focus. But when her investigation ends up evoking the wrath of the long-dormant killer, she must race to piece together the final evidence - before she becomes the target.

Not a fan

Was really intrigued by the summary of this book. However, all the characters felt flat and unrealistic to me. All very exaggerated stereotypes. I tried to get into it and listened for the first 2 hours, then had to give up...

Imaginative and well-crafted

Twins born to a fatally injured mother kept alive until their birth. The mother murdered by the father of the twins, charismatic, high-powered, political candidate Grady MacLemore. Thirty years later we catch up to the twins, gone their separate ways, Jane into crime scene photography, and Jack into politics. Photographs from the crime scene mysteriously come into Jane's possession, and put her on the trail of the truth about why her mother was murdered--a question never answered by Grady's trial and conviction.

The plot is imaginative and unusual, convoluted but mostly successful, the writing more than adequate. I don't think the author pulled off the chasm in the twins' relationship, but the switches from past to present were done well enough and worked for me. The ending was a little strained, but still held together, and until close to the finish, had me wondering. I recommend this book as interesting and entertaining.
