Blurb: 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.
I bought this book in a bookstore sale. I was atttacted by the look of the book, red cover and hard-bound. The blurb seemed interesting and I told myself, "Let's try this one". And I am happy I made a good choice.
The story is about a journalist who adopts a baby boy. A couple of years later she sees a picture of a missing boy who looks like her kid. And she starts digging.
The book is fast-paced and I felt as if I am watching a well-written and well directed hollywood movie. It has drama, thrill, romance and action. The story is well paced out and is on track. The short chapters kept my interest alive at all times. I really enjoyed the book.
