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.

Lisa Scottoline breaks new ground in Look Again, a thriller that's both heart-stopping and heart-breaking, and sure to have new fans and book clubs buzzing.

    " Good read however not much depth. Ending somewhat contrived. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melody Harmon | 2/11/2014

    " This isn't the type of book I would normally read, but it was a cheap ebook deal I came across when I wanted something to read. It's a very fast, easy read. I really enjoyed it. I wish that there had been some more character development. If you are interested in reading it make sure that you have a day or two free to read it. I couldn't put it down, and ended up having two VERY late nights. "

    " This was the book I handed out for World Book Night & I am so glad! I thoroughly enjoyed this suspense novel. I read someone described it as "like a Lifetime movie". I concur but subtract the bad acting ;) The subject matter too, hit me hard as a mom. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lise | 1/22/2014

    " A super easy read that draws you in right away... the downside for me was that I figured it out every step of the way and there was no element of surprise. It ended nicely enough, in a warm sweet way you might want a story of this nature to end. So, you want a good airplane read- this is it. I polished it off in one day. "
