I've been grabbing audio books to listen to in my car recently. I get rather addicted to them once I start. Maybe even to the point that I try to think of someplace I need to drive just so I can listen some more.
Body Double is a Crime/Mystery/Thriller. Little did I know that it's one of the Rizzoli and Isles stories that the TV series is based on. I think I may have been expecting another thriller that would have been the basis for the 1984 movie with the same name, Body Double.
This book starts with a murder in which the victim is a spot on look-a-like for Dr. Isles. So much so that the investigative team is pretty shocked when she shows up wondering what is going on.
Dr. Isles discovers she had a twin sister. They were separated at birth and adopted by different sets of parents. (What a way to make such a discovery!) Since the victim is killed right outside Dr. Isles' home, the question becomes who is/was the real target?
The twists and turns in this story and satisfying and unexpected. I give it 3 of 5 shots. I enjoyed the story a lot but it's not my usual genre.
