Read Review: Look Again

Look Again by Lisa Scottoline
Hardcover, 337 pages
Published April 14th 2009 by St. Martin's Press (first published January 1st 2009)

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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.
