Sandra Brown as good as ever. Mix in twins, indians, and FBI and local agents trying to solve Kidnappings, murders and suicides while being laughed at by an egomaniac and you get a great stew.

It wouldn't be the first time that identical twins Gillian and Melina Lloyd switched identities, yet it's the first time as adults that they've even considered the prank. Melina, the more impetuous twin, proposes that her circumspect sister take her place as media escort to NASA astronaut and national hero Colonel Christopher "Chief" Hart. Gillian declines for a very personal reason -- she's preoccupied with whether or not the artificial insemination she underwent that day will be successful. Besides, she warns Melina, such a switch could have unexpected consequences. Identical twins Melina and Gillian Lloyd share all of their thoughts and experiences. However, each follows her own lifestyle and career path. Gillian is in real estate but wishes to start a family before it is too late. In her public relations position, Melina is assigned to escort a famous astronaut, Christopher "Chief" Heart. The next day Gillian is found, and the case is closed when the murderer is quickly tracked down and discovered to have committed suicide. But that special bond between twins tells Melina that there is more to this tragedy. With the aid of the Chief she sets out to find answers.

As a lark, identical twins Gillian and Melina Lloyd decide to switch identities. Gillian will pose as Melina and escort NASA astronaut Christopher "Chief" Lloyd to his media events. This turns out to be an easy assignment for Gillian.

But the next morning Melina is awakened by police with the news that Gillian was found murdered. On the walls are insults and message directed at Gillian, along with insults that link Chief to the crime. Soon Melina and Chief join forces to solve her twin's murder.

This was an interesting story with lots of twists, but most of them were easy to figure out. My rating: 4 Stars.

Identical twins are fair game for a thriller writer, and in The Switch, queen of suspense Sandra Brown (The Alibi, Standoff, Fat Tuesday) makes the most of an intricate setup involving Gillian and Melina Lloyd, a pair of thirtysomething Dallas beauties. When Gillian hears her biological clock ticking, she puts herself in the hands of the world-famous Waters Clinic and is artificially inseminated (as described in a somewhat plodding first chapter that omits no detail of the procedure). The action picks up when Gillian switches places with her twin, a media escort, and chauffeurs sexy astronaut Chief Hart around town. It turns out to be a fatal attraction, and suspicion falls on Chief when Gillian's mutilated body is found the next day.

Thriller. Aprox. 5 hours.

"A story that reveals the powerful, almost mystical bond between twins--a bond that compels a woman to go to impossible lengths to avenge her sister, THE SWITCH defies every prediction." from the cover.

Loved It!!! Couldn't put it down, definitely kept me turning the pages and wondering what would happen next. Ms.Brown doesn't get so bogged down in details that the story stalls - it stays fast paced from page 1.
