Identical by Scott Turow  IDENTICAL, based loosely on the myth of Castor and Pollux, is the story of identical twins Paul and Cass Giannis and the complex relationships between their family and their former neighbors, the Kronons. The novel focuses principally on events in 2008, when Paul is a candidate for Mayor of Kindle County, and Cass is released from the penitentiary, 25 years after pleading guilty to the murder of his girlfriend, Aphrodite Kronon. The plot centers on the re-investigation of Aphrodite's murder, carried out together by Evon Miller, an ex-FBI agent who is the head of security for the Kronon family business ZP, and private investigator Tim Brodie, 81, a former homicide detective. The complex web of murder, sex, and betrayal-as only Scott Turow could weave-dramatically unfolds, and the chilling truth is revealed: people will believe what they want to believe.

HUBBY'S REVIEW:
A love story, a murder story and a story about two Greek families and their relationship with each other from the old country to the U.S. It starts off where you are at a big Greek celebration and for the most part you are introduced to most of the main charters. The title identical refers to twins and they are the main part of the story. The story starts at the party then you go back and forth at different times getting to know the characters at the different moments in their lives. During this whole process you are sent on a journey of twists and turns of who done what and where and did this person do it or someone else. You are going along and you think you have it all figured out until you get to end. A very well written and thought out story with just the right amount of twists and turns to keep you interested in the story and the characters. I really enjoyed this book. I got this book from net galley.
