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...

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.

This book had a good storyline and I did become interested in the ending.
However chapter 37 almost made me physically ill. The way it described what was happening, was so over the top.
Also the use of the word ‘spastic ‘ in a derogatory way was disgraceful.
