Product Overview

From the bestselling author of "The Alibi" comes a new thriller about a woman investigating the murder of her identical twin sister. Melina vows to stop at nothing to learn the truth and avenge Gillian's death. But soon she is on the run from police, the FBI, and the mastermind whose evil plot to engineer the perfect "switch" could result in disastrous consequences on a global scale.

From the Publisher
Gillian and Melina are identical twin sisters, both beautiful and close in every way but are complete opposites. Gillian is the straight and narrow career-woman. Melina is the wild one. When one twin is murdered after a secret night of passion with a world-famous astronaut, the other will stop at nothing to find the truth and avenge her death. Even if exacting revenge will cause her to cross the police, and the FBI.

From Publishers Weekly
With some 60 novels, including 40-plus bestsellers already to her credit, it seems a sure bet that this new romantic thriller will not blemish Brown's phenomenal track record. On a whim, the same day she is artificially inseminated at a Dallas fertility clinic, Gillian Lloyd switches places with her identical twin sister, Melina, a professional celebrity escort assigned to chauffeur astronaut Col. Christopher Hart (or "Chief," as he is called by his NASA cohorts because his mother was a Native American). It's lust at first sight. Swept away by Chief, Gillian is caught up in a marathon frenzy of lovemaking in his hotel room. Slipping out in the wee hours of the night, she is found brutally butchered in her own bed the next morning. From an obscene blood-smeared scrawl on the bedroom wall, her sister realizes that the killing was related to Gillian's love tryst with the astronaut. Hours later, the killer, an employee at the fertility clinic, commits suicide. The resulting investigation connects him to Brother Gabriel, the charismatic, egomaniacal leader of a powerful TV religious cult who is mysteriously linked in turn to artificial insemination clinics nationwide. Determined to avenge Gillian's murder, Melina and Chief become the targets of professional assassins masquerading as FBI agents. Potential witnesses are murdered as the trail eventually leads the pair (now fighting to keep their hands off each other) cross-country to Brother Gabriel's mountain stronghold in the remote reaches of New Mexico. Displaying her talents for fast pacing and tricky plotting, Brown delivers one of her patented twists in the denouement, setting the scene for a breathy, rose-colored climax.

From the Publisher
Annotation Melina Lloyd's identical twin sister, Gillian, is brutally murdered, after an evening spent subbing for Melina as the official Dallas escort of the astronaut Colonel Christopher Hart.
