Bennie Rosato, head of her own Philadelphia
law firm, is a criminal attorney now specializing in police misconduct cases,
and she’s seen the noblest and most deviant aspects of human nature. But
nothing can prepare her for the moment she enters a maximum security prison to
meet her new client, Alice Connolly, face to face. Accused of brutally
murdering her lover, a highly decorated police detective, Connolly claims the
police framed her. What shocks Bennie is that Connolly bears an uncanny
physical resemblance to her. “Pleased to meet you. I’m your twin,” Connolly
tells the astonished lawyer.
But Bennie doesn’t have a twin. Or does she?
Connolly knows too many intimate details about Bennie’s life and family for the
resemblance to be just coincidental. Taking the case with the trial only a week
away, Bennie plunges into the mystery of the murder, as well as her won
identity and her family’s dark secrets. Is Connolly innocent? And is she Bennie’s
unknown sister? It is not until Bennie takes the case to verdict that she will
finally learn the truth which threatens to change her life.
