what if you found your "twin" on the slab?
Dr. Maura Isles makes her living dealing with death. As a
pathologist in a major metropolitan city, she has seen more
than her share of corpses every day–many of them victims of
violent murder. But never before has her blood run cold,
and never has the grim expression “dead ringer” rung so
terrifyingly true. Because never before has the lifeless
body on the medical examiner’s table been her own.
Yet there can be no denying the mind-reeling evidence
before her shocked eyes and those of her colleagues,
including Detective Jane Rizzoli: the woman found shot to
death outside Maura’s home is the mirror image of Maura,
down to the most intimate physical nuances. Even more
chilling is the discovery that they share the same birth
date and blood type. For the stunned Maura, an only child,
there can be just one explanation. And when a DNA test
confirms that Maura’s mysterious doppelgänger is in fact
her twin sister, an already bizarre murder investigation
becomes a disturbing and dangerous excursion into a past
full of dark secrets.
Searching for answers, Maura is drawn to a seaside town in
Maine where other horrifying surprises await. But perhaps
more frightening, an unknown murderer is at large on a
cross-country killing spree. To stop the massacre and
uncover the twisted truth about her own roots, Maura must
probe her first living subject: the mother that she never
knew . . . an icy and cunning woman who could be
responsible for giving Maura life–and who just may have a
plan to take it away.
