Overview

Solving a complicated Louisville murder has turned sleuthing sisters Bert and Nan Tatum into local celebrities - and has made Nan the star d.j. at Kentucky radio station WCKI The trouble is, the publicity has also made Nan a sitting duck for call-in crazies who want her to play detective instead of Patsy Cline. But one mystery caller makes a request too intriguing for Nan to ignore: to investigate a three-year-old murder/suicide - involving twins. Three years ago photographer Crane Morgan's twin brother Lane leaped to his death after he was accused of murdering his girlfriend. With two witnesses and a DNA match, the suicide seemed like a confession, and the case was closed. Until a second person - a Louisville socialite - asks Nan and Bert to reopen the case. But the sisters aren't prepared for the complications - such as Nan's attraction to Crane Morgan that not even Bert can discourage. Only a few days later, Bert's doubts are doubled when someone else is found murdered. Now Bert has to work twice as hard to solve a case that's becoming more puzzling with each baffling new clue. And more dangerous, as she and Nan are cunningly lured into a deadly trap built for two.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Written by twins about twin amateur detectives whose points of view alternate by chapters, the second in a series (after Double Murder) is easy, breezy fun. Louisville, Ky., country music deejay Nan Tatum falls head over heels for gorgeous Crane Morgan (also a twin) while her sister, Bert, looks on in dismay. Bert's suspicious after hearing Crane's sad tale of his twin brother's death and comparing it with the somewhat different account of the same event from gossipy Louise Eagleston. There's no doubt that Lane Morgan killed his lover, Marian, then committed suicide before he could be arrested. Whether her death was accidental or deliberate, however, can never be proven. Either way, could Crane be enough like Lane to have homicidal tendencies? While Bert ponders the question, she pulls the old twin switch with Nan, who's agreed to have dinner with Louise but who wants to go out with Crane instead. Bert finds Louise dying of a stab wound; the woman gives her bloodstained pictures of the Morgan brothers with Marian; and Bert hears Louise's last wordswhich seem to confirm her fears that Nan will be the next victim. Replete with twin fact and lore, this story bounces along even if it's twice as cute as it needs to be. (Sept.) FYI: As Taylor McCafferty, Barbara Taylor McCafferty writes the Haskell Blevins mysteries.
Kirkus Reviews
A second adventure for fortyish Nan and Bert Tatum, identical twin sisters living in Louisville, Kentucky, where Nan is a DJ at country-music station WCKI, and Bert, her 20-year marriage ended, works as an office temp. The twins' previous experiences in sleuthing (Double Murder, 1996) have provoked a series of calls to Nan from a nameless, obviously sick woman begging for help in solving the murder of her "sweet baby." Nan, though sympathetic, brushes her off. She's more absorbed by the new man in her life—Crane Morgan, a portrait photographer from nearby Owensboro, introduced to her by effusive matron Louise Eagleston, from the same town. It soon develops that Crane is also an identical twin. His brother Lane, accused of killing girlfriend Marian Fielding, committed suicide two years ago. It's Bert, taking Nan's place as a dinner guest, who finds Louise stabbed to death in her kitchen, and Police Detective Hank Goetzmann—Nan's old flame, soon to be Bert's new one—is put in charge of the case. Crane Morgan, the prime suspect, is given an alibi by Nan, whose anonymous caller has grown even more hysterical with the news of Louise's death. Only when the sisters, seemingly at risk, venture into their own rash investigations does the silly plot stagger to its conclusion.

Nan and Bert's narration, in alternating chapters, has a wryly chipper style that all too quickly begins to pall, though it might be more palatable in the service of a plot that doesn't test credulity at every turn.
