Accused of killing her cop boyfriend, Anthony Della Porta, in cold blood, Alice Connolly wants tenacious criminal defense attorney Bennie Rosato to represent her. But the no-nonsense Philadelphia lawyer isn’t interested, until she meets the accused killer face to face . . . and is shocked by what she sees. Not only does Alice bear an uncanny resemblance to Bennie, she claims she’s her twin. But Bennie grew up an only child. She doesn’t have a sister. Or does she?
Confused and intrigued, Bennie agrees to take the case, a search for justice and the truth that plunges her into a dark world of corruption, secrets, and violence and into the depths of her own past. It is a complicated and dangerous quest that will challenge the integrity of the grounded attorney and leave her questioning everything—including herself—until the shocking end.
An electrifying tale that will leave readers breathless to the final page, Mistaken Identity is a classic tale of law and suspense from the masterful Lisa Scottoline.
