"A humdinger"--USA Today

"Ratcheting suspense, dynamic characters, and a master's touch"--David Baldacci, New York Times bestselling author of The Sixth Man

With the spellbinding crime fiction masterwork, Mistaken Identity, Lisa Scottoline rocketed onto the New York Times bestseller list--and she's remained there ever since! A stunning tale of mystery and suspense, this classic from the beloved, Edgar(R) Award-winning author once again leads readers down the gritty streets of Philadelphia and into the offices of the law firm of Rosato & Associates. When a new client who's been accused of murder--and who bears an astonishing resemblance to Bennie Rosato--asks the crusading criminal defense attorney to take her case, Bennie finds herself entangled in a sticky web of murder, corruption, and violence that threatens to reveal the shocking truth about her own past. If you haven't read Lisa Scottoline before, Mistaken Identity will prove to you what her many fans already know: nobody does it better!

Back cover copy

Bennie Rosato thought she had seen it all--until she meets her new client, Alice Connolly, who looks exactly like Bennie and tells her, "Hello, I'm your twin." A shocked Bennie can't deny the uncanny resemblance, but she grew up an only child and assumed she didn't have a sister, much less an identical twin. But Alice seems to know too much for it to be a scam, and Bennie can't walk away. She agrees to defend Alice on a murder charge and plunges into the mystery of the crime--unraveling a twisted skein of lies, greed, and danger that jeopardizes her livelihood and ultimately even her life. At the same time, she uncovers the truth of her own identity, a secret that will leave her questioning everything she ever knew about her family--and herself.
