For the first hundred pages or so, while Turow is fleshing out the dramatis personaethe reader suspects that the plot may unfold to reveal that the wrong brother went to prison.

In Identical, Turow tells the story of twins involved in a year-old murder I wanted to like ‘Identical’. So what could be the problem since Cass confessed to the crime all those sccott ago? The first is Evon Miller, a young former FBI agent and out-of-the-closet lesbian with woman troubles of her own.

This accusation becomes an issue in the tudow when Hal, a billionaire developer, creates a series of TV commercials with interviews with Paul’s embittered girlfriend implicating Paul.
