Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

When confronted with the most challenging and the most personal case of her legal career, Bennie Rosato--an expert on police corruption--questions everything she has learned as a criminal attorney, and everyone she considers to be family. During a visit behind the bars of Philadelphia's Central Corrections facility, Bennie is shocked to discover that an inmate bears a striking physical resemblance to herself. The prisoner, Alice Connolly, stands accused of murdering her cop boyfriend Anthony Della Porta, and the case reeks of a police conspiracy. Connolly convinces Bennie to defend her in court. Bennie feels confused, intrigued, and even somewhat elated by this clone of herself, and dives head first into a bubbling cauldron of corruption, drugs, murder, and assault--mixed in with a thought-provoking subplot that questions the intricacies of legal ethics.

Mistaken Identity is Lisa Scottoline's sixth and tastiest dish yet. The book is gripping and smart, and it brings into bloom the highly likable character of Bennie Rosato, who made her debut appearance in Legal Tender. Bennie has her vulnerable moments--we witness this when, in some emotional scenes, she doubts the authenticity of her twin. Still, Ms. Rosato is no shrinking violet, especially when it comes to exposing the questionable goings-on of Philadelphia's Eleventh Precinct.

Scottoline keeps us in a bubble of suspense--is Connolly really Bennie's twin? Did she murder Della Porta? If not, who did and why? The author neatly ties all our unanswered questions together into a perfectly formed bow, and keeps us frantically turning pages until the very end. --Naomi Gesinger

Pressestimmen

Praise for Rough Justice: 'A wonderfully engrossing, sometimes hilarious thriller that will delight courtroom junkies and cement her standing as the female John Grisham' People Magazine 'Her skill as a novelist makes her plot sizzle with cliff-hanging intensity' Publishers Weekly 'Scottoline clinches her title as the distaff Grisham with this gorgeously plotted novel based on a trial lawyer's worst nightmare' Kirkus Reviews Praise for Legal Tender: 'Fast paced and witty crime thriller! Scottoline has produced a royal flush' San Francisco Examiner

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book - kept me up all night! 16. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Don't miss this book if you enjoy a good, fast-paced read with a legal bent to it. The review from Kirkus Associates does a much better job of describing the book than I can, so I'll leave that to them. Had never read any of Lisa Scottoline's novels before, but after finishing MISTAKEN IDENTITY, I immediately ordered her previous novel, ROUGH JUSTICE.
Ms. Scottoline's characters are real, and it doesn't take long to realize that she writes from personal experience and observation. She has been described as the " female John Grisham," but that description doesn't do her justice. Like Grisham, her past legal experience has paid off with her ability to create some very believable characters.
Lisa also has an interesting Web site at [...] and it's worth the visit to learn a bit more about the author. You'l' find a message board and online reviews there as well. That's where I found out that MISTAKEN IDENTY has evidently been optioned for development into a television series.
Looking forward to reading all of her previous novels.

Accused cop killer Alice Connolly asks attorney Benedetta Rosato to visit her at the Philadelphia Central Corrections facility, a maximum security prison that houses murderers, rapists, and society's worst dregs. To Bennie's shock, Alice looks like a twin sister, which is something the prisoner claims to be true.
Alice has been charged with killing her lover police detective Anthony Della Porta. She insists that she did not murder him, his associates in the department killed him. Bennie agrees to take on the already botched legal defense of Alice. As the lawyer and her all female legal team plunge into the case, they quickly find the circumstantial evidence as overwhelmingly condemning their client. At the same time, Bennie wonders about her relationship with Alice and begins to look into that also. As her legal defense struggles, Bennie begins to question whether the entire justice system, from convicts to the police to the judge, are not tied in some form of conspiracy with drug traffickers. Than again, her client remains the most obvious person to have committed the crime.
Readers will not mistake the identity of one of the top writers of legal thrillers, the brilliant Lisa Scottoline. Her latest novel, MISTAKEN IDENTITY, combines a fabulous legal case with personal insight into the main protagonist. The story line never slows down as the legal case and the accompanying investigation are filled up by a taut tale of non-stop action. The secondary plot involving Alice's alleged relationship to Bennie augments the prime tale with an intriguing personal drama. No question will remain to sub-genre fans that John Grisham is the male Scottoline.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good, but not outstanding. 4. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Based on the chronology of the reviews for this book, it appears that the early conventional wisdom was that it was a 5-star book while the more recent conventional wisdom is that it is something less. I am in the latter category. This was the first book I have read by this author, and I must admit I was somewhat surprised by the effusive praise that her work has received, particularly if, as some of her fans have said, this Philadelphia travelogue is her very best work. It was enjoyable enough to read, but for me it had an artificial, connect-the-dots, or paint-by-numbers, feel to it. I can picture the author preparing an exhaustive outline, carefully playing out the different strands of the plot, and then (barely) putting some flesh on the bones of the outline. In fact, I was surprised by those below who felt that there was not enough plot, because I felt that perhaps the book suffered from the opposite problem: too much plot. That is why it seemed to me as if the author wrote a 500-page book out of a 400-page outline: when she wasn't slavishly moving the plot along (as per the outline), she had little left to say. It also seemed as if every hunch of each of the "heroes" is right on the money, and every lead followed hits paydirt. It also seemed that Bennie's boyfriend was just a bit too perfect, particularly given that Bennie more or less ignore him the entire time. Could I have written a book this "good"? No. But by the same token, it didn't seem to me to have the same professional feel that I found in works by Grisham and Turow and Richard North Patterson.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lisa has done it again --- Another Blockbuster!! 27. März 1999
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
"Mistaken Identity" is Lisa Scottoline's sixth and best book yet. This former Edgar Award winner gets better with every novel. "Mistaken Identity" and "Rough Justice", her previous novel, bring back previous heroines -- Bennie Rosato, Mary DiNunzio, and Judy Carrier. It is most enjoyable to see the character of each of these three lawyers continue to develop.
In "Mistaken Identity", Lisa makes excellent use of her legal background to depict courtroom scenes as only a lawyer could. The plot itself is unique in that Bennie finds herself defending a prisoner, Alice Connolly, who claims to be Bennie's twin. Although the book is almost 500 pages, it is an extremely fast read. As in all of her novels, the suspense is non-stop, from beginning to end.
In her "Acknowledgements", Lisa reveals that she did not discover until she was in her thirties that she had a half-sister. So, the book has a special meaning for her. She has meticulously researched the subject of twins and provides the reader with five references for additional information.
Lisa has a marvelous website . Months ago, readers were given an opportunity to edit the first chapter of "Mistaken Identity". This additional dimension to Lisa's creativity further bonds the reader to an outstanding author.
