Think Twice by Lisa Scottoline is the 11th book in the “Rosato & Associates” thriller series. Publisher: St. Martin’s Press, March 2010
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 twin’s psyche, as well as Bennie’s 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 win—with herself.
Lisa Scottoline writes riveting emotional thrillers that combine the ethical dilemmas of Jodi Picoult with the breakneck packing of James Patterson. With its blistering speed, vivid characters, and perplexing moral questions, Think Twice is the ultimate thriller to keep fans and book clubs reading long into the night.
We thought Alice was out of Bennie’s life, but no, she’s come back with a vengeance and what she want to do, well, you’ll have to read about it for yourself. This was a thrilling ride a minute and once I read that first sentence, I could not put this book down (okay, I couldn’t read for 9 hours while I was at work), but once I opened the book again, I read non-stop until the last sentence. My rating: 5 stars
