The twin switch routine is rooted in pop culture from "The Prince & the Pauper" to many TV sitcoms featuring a main character discovering s/he has a double. It is a premise that has long become cliché.
The good twin vs the evil twin is just as much of a pop culture cliché and this book and the others in the series that feature lawyer Bennie Rosato (good twin) and her sister Alice Connelly (evil twin) are part of that cliché. In this installment, Bennie visits her sister who drugs her and buries her in a field. The series of events that soon ensue are ludicrous and implausible. We have Bennie's unbelievable escape (you knew she would escape as she is part of a series) and Alice's crazy antics. Grady, whom regular readers know is Bennie's boyfriend is fooled by Alice and sleeps with her. Bennie, for all her brilliance in the courtroom keeps her computer and banking passwords in an accessible place where Alice finds them. That flies in the face of her otherwise intelligence. Alice poses as Bennie and manages to fool most of the regular cast of characters at Rosato & Associates. The one person she doesn't fool is associate and soon to become partner Mary DiNunzio's father's friend, Fiorella.
Fiorella is an interesting character. (In the paperback edition in the Author Discussion Pages, Fiorella is called “Valentina.” What is that all about?) She claims to be a witch (strega) and she might even possibly be psychic. She does have the gift of intuition. Alice keeps bad company; deals drugs and is very dodgy. Bennie, once having escaped is mistaken for Alice and meets some of her shady acquaintances. One however helps her by providing her with clothing. Bennie is hot on Alice's trail as Alice has embezzled funds from the firm as well as depleted Bennie's bank accounts. Alice is planning on leaving the country to enjoy an indolent life of wealth and ease. Her escape plan is completely preposterous. Alice somehow gets people involved in her fanciful schemes and one scene involving an act of terrorism on an airplane is just too far fetched. The ending is completely unbelievable to the point of being farcical.
That having been said, I like this author and her other books. The books that feature Alice not so much. I also didn't care for "Dirty Blonde," which has a somewhat similar premise in that the protagonist has a dark after 5:00 side. A top rate author can write a turkey and this one is a turkey. Even Paul McCartney who is a bastion of talent has written a few stinkers, such as 2001's "Freedom." The only good thing about Alice is that she is not a bigot - she will sleep with anybody who will help her cause regardless of race. Alice was for the birds. Even so, this book was a disappointment.
The 1965 Dave Clark 5 classic "Catch Us if You Can" could underscore this book.
