Dr. Maura Isles comes home to Boston from a medical conference in Paris to discover police investigating a murder just outside her home. And the victim is her exact double.

DNA tests reveal the murder victim is, in fact, her twin sister, though the doctor, an adoptee, wasn’t aware she had any siblings. Subsequent investigation discloses she and her twin were sold to a baby broker lawyer by a psychotic woman serving a life term for a double homicide. Could that woman be their mother?

The story proceeds with more twists and turns than a country road to unravel a complicated plot full of surprises and with a nail-biting conclusion. Tess Gerritsen writes the kind of thriller that keeps you up at night, both because you’re compelled to keep turning pages and because it’s bound to give you goose-bumps and make you start at sudden noises.
