I read it a long time ago and I hardly remember it... I can say that it kept me entertained one spring break. ( )

This was an odd book. It was written from the omniscient point of view and since I don’t read a lot that is written like that, it was a little disconcerting. Instead of limited knowledge building suspense, it was who would get to the twins first. It seems that all their enemies decided to come after them at once. Even those who weren’t enemies per se (like his wife who knew all along there were two of them, she just wanted to confront them about it and go on living with both of them) came out of the woodwork.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553573977, Mass Market Paperback)

A uniquely terrifying thriller that breaks all of the commandments...with a vengeance.

Not since Cain and Abel have there been two brothers like...The Hancock Boys.

What if two identical twin brothers decided to share a career, a family, a wife, a life? That is exactly what the Hancock boys decided to do. They took turns playing the role of the perfect husband, father, and bestselling novelist while the other lived out his wildest fantasies. It seemed the perfect setup. But what if one of them pushed the game too far? What if there was someone out there who knew their secret?

And, worst of all, what if one of the brothers suspected the other of teetering on the edge of sanity? The Hancock boys both know their game is coming to an end. And they have the perfect plan to protect their marriage, their skyrocketing career, and their very lives. The two men must become one. But which brother is willing to make the ultimate sacrifice? And with so much at stake, can either truly trust the other?

"Simpson has a terrific story to tell and plenty of talent to pull it off."
--Chicago Tribune
