Turow's masterful and delicately humane legal thrillers set in fictive Kindle County are always intricate masterpieces of plotting and his new novel, the first in some years, is no exception as we encounter two identical twins, one a politician in the ascendant, the other a prisoner about to be released after serving a term for murder. But did he do it, or who did it? Set in the Greek community this is first and foremost a tale about people, families and their vulnerability and secrets. So much more than a mystery.
Two families entangled in a long and complex history of love and deceit ...Twenty five years ago, after a society picnic held by businessman and politician Zeus Kronon, Zeus' headstrong daughter Dita was found murdered. Her boyfriend, Cass Gianis, confessed to the crime. Now Cass has been released from prison into the care of his twin, Mayoral candidate Paul Gianis, who is in the middle of a high profile political campaign. But Dita's brother Hal is convinced there is information surrounding his sister's death that remains buried -- and he won't rest until he's discovered the truth. Hal's employee, former FBI Special Agent Evon Miller, teams up with Tim Brodie, a retired police officer, to investigate. After all this time, can they find evidence to place Paul Gianis, the 'innocent' twin, at the scene of the crime? Soon Paul will find himself struggling to hold his campaign together amidst Hal's increasingly damning allegations. But what does the mayoral candidate really have to hide? And why has Cass Gianis vanished? A gripping masterpiece of dark family rivalries, shadowy politics and hidden secrets, Identical is the stunning new thriller from bestselling author Scott Turow, writing at the height of his powers.
