Bennie Rosato looks exactly like her identical twin, Alice Connolly, but the darkness in Alice's soul makes them two very different women. Or at least that's what Bennie believes, until she finds herself buried alive at the hands of her twin.
Meanwhile, Alice takes over Bennie's life, impersonating her at work and even seducing her boyfriend in order to escape the deadly mess she has made of her own life. But Alice underestimates Bennie and the evil she has unleashed in her twins psyche, as well as Bennies determination to stay alive long enough to exact revenge.
Bennie must face the twisted truth that she is more like her sister Alice than she could have ever imagined, and by the novel's shocking conclusion, Bennie finds herself engaged in a war she cannot winwith herself.

Super bad story! Why would Alice drag Judy to the docks to kill her (Alice could have gone directly to the airport after the meeting with Rexco at the office) when Judy was unsure of Alice's real identity and didn't have nothing on her? Absolutely uncalled for, puerile as well. The piece on the docks in itself is ridiculous, what with Mary DiNunzio, her parents (good grief!), Grady, Fiorella Bucatina and the real Bennie there.. Must have been twenty people there.. Gosh, the scene was comic at best.
This book is completely uninspired. If you really want to read it, do yourself a favor and borrow it from the closest public library or from a friend or neighbor... don't buy it.. it is not worth your money. Honestly.

Like a bad first novel....
Great authors can definitely fall short on occasion. That is the case of L. Scottoline and her latest book, Think Twice. The story, while somewhat entertaining, fails to convince and captivate the reader. The characters show no depth at all, the plot feels like a bad rehearsal. The overall feel is that of a badly written first novel. I did not expect it from a writer of the stature of Scottoline, but I guess a contract is a contract....
My two cents, anyway. =)
Lisa Scottoline is the New York Times bestselling author and Edgar award-winning author of 20 novels, including Don't Go, published April 9, 2013.

These stories, along with many other never-before-published stories, have been collected in four books including their most recent, Meet Me at Emotional Baggage Claim, and the earlier, Best Friends, Occasional Enemies, Why My Third Husband Will Be a Dog, which has been optioned for TV, and My Nest Isn't Empty, It Just Has More Closet Space. Lisa reviews popular fiction and non-fiction, and her reviews have appeared in New York Times, The Washington Post...
