Complicated. One of the things I like most about Scott Turow’s crime fiction is the way the author respects the intelligence of readers. Turow presents a complicated plot in Identical, and leaves it to us readers to follow him through all the twists in the story. Turow’s protagonists are identical twins, one of whom is being released from prison in 2008 having served time for a 1982 murder. Turow brings us to the past to understand the present, and offers a wide cast of interesting characters. Readers who like crime fiction, especially novels that require paying close attention, are those most likely to be entertained by this book.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
