State Senator Paul Giannis is a candidate for Mayor of Kindle County. His identical twin brother Cass is newly released from prison, 25 years after pleading guilty to the murder of his girlfriend, Dita Kronon. When Evon Miller, an ex-FBI agent who is the head of security for the Kronon family business, and private investigator Tim Brodie begin a reinvestigation of Dita's death, a complex web of murder, sex, and betrayal, as only Scott Turow could weave, dramatically unfolds.

I found, however, the sections dealing with a lesbian couple rather unnecessary, boring and quite predictable. I wonder why this stuff was included - the two ladies have nothing to contribute to the main story. It ends on comical note.
Tim, the fit oldster, should be a role model for me (I am 79 now). Turow's description of his aging but still working body is kind of encouraging.
Interesting similarity to Jeffrey Archer's fiction: an incest. Archer, I think, uses it two stories and Turow uses it here as well.
Turow created here something similar to classic Greek tragedies. This is, however, 2013 AD not 500 BC. The women, however are the strongest players here, as they were back then.
I liked Grisham's last opus much better but Turow is not that bad. I may buy a few books I missed after his first one or two.
Recommended but with reservations.
Scott Turow is certainly one of our best mystery writers. Unfortunately, "Identical" isn't one of his better books. Like most serious mystery readers, figuring the plot out early in the book and finding we're right at every plot twist and juncture gives us no pleasure. "Identical" was all too easy to figure out. Were the characters people we cared about, I wouldn't have minded, but I can't think any of them were interesting, likable, or well developed enough to say that I wanted to finish the book just to see how they all fared. Kudos to Amazon for helping me find the pleasure of reading Kindle books, and best wishes to Scott Turow on his next book. He's given us great pleasure in the past. I'm certain he'll continue to give us pleasure in the future.
