Publisher's Summary

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.

    "A great book"

    I've read and enjoyed lots of Lisa Scottoline books. Most of them are more lighthearted than this one. The story is interesting and makes you think about what you'd do if you had a similar moral dilemma. it has a bit of a fairytale ending, but I still liked it alot. Highly recommended!

    "Not a Mystery"

    I had never listened to Lisa Scottoline before and in searching for a book under the 'mysteries/thrillers' came across this and thought it interesting. I am not sure why it was sitting in that particular genre, I didn't find it mysterious or thrilling. Think the story is more about this mothers undying devotion/love to her adopted son and the conflict that goes on within her in the should I or shouldn't I premise. It was slow and not in a good way so you could put the pieces together, but slow as in constantly saying the same thing/visiting the same problem over and over again just said in a slightly different way. The ending fell off the roadway for me. I thought.. I've waited 7 hours for this? That being said, if you ignore the fact this isn't an edge of your seat who dun it, you do feel the emotion of the mother at some points even tho the story gets a little old, Lisa Scottoline was able to project that feeling on you. Mary Stuart Masterson did an excellent job narrating. Didn't care for the Brazilian accent but the little boys voice she did pretty good. Didn't find it irritating like another reviewer. Think her narration made me keep listening to this book. Its a roll the dice book, just don't expect a lot from the genre its sitting in.

    "Not worth reading"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I felt that this book lacked everything makes for good literature. It had a weak plot, poor character development, the author's research for the story line was not thorough. I read this book for a book club and the majority of my fellow members agreed with my assessment.

    "Excellent book!"

    I could not stop listening thanks to the riveting storyline and the excellent narration. I have read Lisa Scottoline's books in the past and liked it OK, but this was exceptional. Whether you have children of your own or not, you will be drawn in to Ellen's horrible search for the truth. Keep your tissues handy and be prepared for an emotional journey with lots of surprises.

    I have been waiting for something to capture me this way. This book was well written, a true page turner, very heart pulling and unpredictable in ways that keep you hanging on every word! Loved it!!

    "Look again"

    I enjoyed this book a great deal. It had a very different subject than many, and the storyline was satisfying in the end. Although I did figure out who was what before the end it was still a very enjoyable "read."

    "Not the same without Barbara Rosenblat"

    I couldn't get past the absence of Barbara Rosenblat's outstanding readings, which I'm used to from Lisa's other books. The reading by her replacement, Mary Stuart Masterson, seemed flat and tonally soporific, and even after several tries I just couldn't get very far into the book.

    I was forced to enter a story rating here to avoid the software thinking my review incomplete, so I gave it a "4" by default based on my expectation from her other books. But in truth I didn't listen to enough of it to know. I only know that I felt the performance lacking, making the audiobook overall a huge disappointment. I bet I'm missing a great story.

    "An okay read"

    This started out very interesting and then ran into a wall about halfway through. I like Lisa Scottoline but this book was not her best. I saw the ending coming a mile away.

    "great"

    I really enjoyed this book and the narrator did a fantastic job. I listen to loads of mysteries so it's nice when I find out that isn't formulaic. And if you're a parent, have a box of tissues handy!

    "An awesome way to spend your time!"

    I was a little disappointed that this was not a Rosato & Associates story, but Look Again is an excellent story. Lisa Scottoline has taken an extremely difficult topic and given it back the emotion it deserves. As usual her character development is outstanding and the reader really gets to know each person in the story through their respective roles.

    One of my favorite things about listening to Lisa Scottoline books has always been the voice Barbara Rosenblat, so when I read that this was a different voice, I had concerns. I can tell listeners that Mary Stuart Masterson, a tremendously talented actress, did a fabulous job. She took to the story with ease and never let me down once.

    I also enjoyed being able to listen to the interview with Lisa Scottoline at the end of the presentation. Ms. Scottoline is a not only a remarkable writer, but shows her talent as an advocate and a mother as well.

    Look Again is a must for not just Scottoline fans, but also fans of a good suspense!
