Identical twins, that's Sophie and Hannah! They have a bond between them that some would say is psychic.
They were known as tearaways in their youth, but they manage to sort themselves out and depart for life as university students.
They decide to step away from each other and try to be less twin like, one could say.
Sophie decides that she wants to be something big in the city and become a high flying legal eagle, but Hannah doesn't think that would be her cup of tea, and she decides to embrace married life and a slightly less exciting law practice in suburbia.
However, it is Hannah who finds herself suddenly pitched inot an overly exciting series of events when she takes on as a client the wife of a Russian oligarch.
Her client is an angry woman and things suddenly begin to go downhill. There are a series of deaths that are both horrendously violent, yet apparently inexplicable.
There are legal battles in courtrooms and then illegal battles across Europe, with a breathtaking chase the length of Europe that ends up in a major battle that breaks out in a charming village in rural Italy.
It's a book that is a romantic legal thriller, and it's one of those books when your reviewer has to be careful not to give too much away, so it remains for me to say "buy this book at the amazingly moderate £8.99 and you'll be in for a real treat."
