From Chapters:
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.

Journal Entry 2 by HoserLauren at Mississauga, Ontario Canada on Sunday, June 10, 2018
When Dr. Maura Isles returns from a trip to Paris, she finds her street buzzing with police activity. Wondering which neighbour got in trouble, as she gets closer she notices the activity is outside her house. A woman was shot in her car, right infront of Isles house and the woman looks exactly like Dr. Isles. Before she showed up, the police thought it was Dr. Isles, the medical examiner for the area. Relieved that it wasn't her, there are a lot of questions. Who was this woman, why was she there, and who killed her?

Dr. Isles' friend Detective Jane Rizzoli is the one investigating the crime and finds out that this woman is actually Dr. Isle's twin, whom she wasn't aware existed. Dr. Isles is confused but wants answers.

This is the forth book in a series that I haven't started. I knew there was a television show created based on these characters but that was about the extent of my knowledge. It was easy to pick up, though I felt far more connected with Dr. Isles than Detective Rizzoli because most of the book centred around the doctor. I'd like to know more about Rizzoli, but really would like to know more about the relationship between the two. I wish there was a little more background on this history in the book for those that haven't started at book one.

The mystery felt a bit disjointed as I was reading it. I wondered how certain events could possibly be connected together but they did end up all getting tied together in the end. Not a bad book!
