Review: Look Again by Lisa Scottoline

When reporter Ellen Gleeson gets a "Have You Seen This Child?" flyer in the mail, she almost throws it away. But something about it makes her look again, and her heart stops―the child in the photo is identical to her adopted son, Will. Her every instinct tells her to deny the similarity between the boys, because she knows her adoption was lawful. But she's a journalist and won't be able to stop thinking about the photo until she figures out the truth. And she can't shake the question: if Will rightfully belongs to someone else, should she keep him or give him up? She investigates, uncovering clues no one was meant to discover, and when she digs too deep, she risks losing her own life―and that of the son she loves.

Review: This was a very emotion story. It was really well done.  I liked it a lot. The character development was spot on. I liked the details of motherhood. The slow churn of the mystery blossoming into a thriller was great. It may not follow the letter of the law regarding child custody but I have no idea what that my be anyway. This is not a documentary on a real event. It's for fun and fun it is.

 Mary Stuart Masterson did a great job reading the story. Gives each character life and their own identity. I would love it hear another story read by her.

This is a great story and includes a short interview with the author.
