Summary
A Boston pathologist, Dr. Maura Isles has seen more than her share of corpses, 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 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. Even more chilling is the discovery that they share the same birth date and blood type. When a DNA test confirm's that the body is that of her previously unknown twin sister, an already bizarre murder investigation becomes a disturbing and dangerous excursion into a past full of dark secrets
