Battling her sister in a heated dispute at the same time her law firm runs into financial trouble, attorney Bennie Rosato takes on a potentially lucrative class action suit and finds unexpected assistance from a mysterious stranger.

HARPERCOLL

Philadelphia attorney Bennie Rosato has her eye focused firmly on the bottom line, and she takes a professional risk when she charges into a class action lawsuit that could make -- or break -- her career.

Then her wallet goes missing. And Bennie's life goes crazy. Someone posing as the outspoken, blue-eyed, blond attorney is wreaking havoc around town, apparently determined to destroy everything Bennie loves.

When events escalate into murder, the maverick lawyer realizes that the stakes are far greater than she feared. But Bennie Rosato refuses to be anyone's victim. To find the killer, she'll plunge headfirst into a life-and-death investigation that will bring her face-to-face with evil darker yet more familiar than anything before.

With Dead Ringer, Lisa Scottoline delivers a tour de force that is not to be missed.

Scottoline's greatest talent is her ability to develop not only interesting, but believable characters. This keeps me coming back for more. This book, however, fell short in the plot area. There were two plots, and either of them would have made for a stimulating book but they danced around each other and made the book less than cohesive. Yes, this could happen in real life but it does not make a great book. As mentioned, Scottoline spends considerable time developing her characters but as her books near their endings, it is like she needs to wrap up the story and make closure. The endings are usually quickly done and often are confusing and don't follow the story logic. In some of the eleven books I have read so far, the endings are pretty far out. But she does have a gift for making her characters realistic.

Lot of action,, LOT OF DESCRIPTION.. Good story plot. at times I wondered how Bennie was head of a law firm. She seemed to not be in charge of her own feelings. But they all worked out things together.
