Identical, based loosely on the myth of Castor and Pollux, is the story of identical twins Paul and Cass Giannis and the complex relationships between their family and their former neighbors, the Kronons. The novel focuses principally on events in 2008, when Paul is a candidate for mayor of Kindle County, and Cass is released from the penitentiary, twenty-five years after pleading guilty to the murder of his girlfriend, Athena Kronon. The plot centers on the reinvestigation of Athena’s murder,carried out together by Evon Miller, an ex-FBI agent who is the head of security for ZP, the Kronon family business, and a private investigator, Tim Brodie, eighty-one, a former homicide detective. The complex web of murder, sex, and betrayal—as only Scott Turow could weave—dramatically unfolds, and the chilling truth is revealed: People will believe what they want to believe.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The rich, sharp courtroom scenes, always Turow’s specialty, are the best parts of the book. He is particularly good at showing how judges use minor rulings to nudge a case to their preferred outcome…The star of the book is Tim Brodie, an eighty-one-year-old private investigator and one of Turow’s most appealing creations. Brodie is beset by age and regrets, and he speaks in cadences reminiscent of Elmore Leonard.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “A vintage Turow legal thriller.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “Turow has obvious fun with his mythological conceit…Classic (in more senses than one) Turow.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Turow’s strange and convoluted plot is surprising and thought-provoking. It provokes with interesting ideas about the relationship between identical twins, while reminding us that things are not always as they seem. Although you may get some inkling of what is going on, there’s enough complexity to keep you guessing until the end. You will be rooting for the odd-matched pair of investigators to find the truth.”
