  On my quest through this treasure box of books, I have just found Body 
Double, by Tess Gerritsen. It's copyright date is August 2004, but I am told 
it's still her most current book. It looks to be a really good book, but I am 
attempting to get through all of these other books which are not mine before I 
do my own. I have already done most of the preliminary corrections, as well as 
the tedious job of stripping the headers minus the page numbers. Kurzweil 
already ranks it in the upper 98 percentile, but I'm sure it can still use a 
quick looking over.  Is anyone interested in validating this book?  If so I 
will submit it, but otherwise I'll have to put it on hold until I dig a little 
deeper through this pile. 
  As I said, it looks to be a good book. Pasted below is the book jacket.

  Boston medical examiner Dr. Maura Isles literally meets her match-and must 
face a savage serial killer and shattering personal revelations-in the 
brilliant new novel of suspense by the New York Times bestselling author of The 
Surgeon and The Sinner.

  Dr. Maura Isles makes her living dealing with death. As a pathologist in a 
major metropolitan city, she has seen more than her share of corpses every 
day-many of them victims of violent murder. But never before has her blood run 
cold, and never has the grim expression "dead ringer" rung so terrifyingly 
true. Because never before has the lifeless body on the medical examiner's 
table been her own.

  Yet there can be no denying the mind-reeling evidence before her shocked eyes 
and those of her colleagues, including Detective Jane Rizzoli: the woman found 
shot to death outside Maura's home is the mirror image of Maura, down to the 
most intimate physical nuances. Even more chilling is the discovery that they 
share the same birth date and blood type. For the stunned Maura, an only child, 
there can be just one explanation. And when a DNA test confirms that Maura's 
mysterious doppelganger is in fact her twin sister, an already bizarre murder 
investigation becomes a disturbing and dangerous excursion into a past full of 
dark secrets.

  Searching for answers, Maura is drawn to a seaside town in Maine where other 
horrifying surprises await. But perhaps more frightening, an unknown murderer 
is at large on a cross-country killing spree. To stop the massacre and uncover 
the twisted truth about her own roots, Maura must probe her first living 
subject: the mother that she never knew... an icy and cunning woman who could 
be responsible for giving Maura life-and who just may have a plan to take it 

  Tess Gerritsen left a successful practice as an internist to raise her 
children and concentrate on her writing. She gained nationwide acclaim for her 
first novel of medical suspense, the New York Times bestseller Harvest. She is 
also the author of the bestsellers Life Support, Bloodstream, and Gravity, as 
well as The Surgeon, The Apprentice, and The Sinner. Tess Gerritsen lives in 
Maine. Visit her Web site at www.tessgerritsen.com.
