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.

    "Excellent Book"

    I loved Look Again. The book was very well written. I listened to the entire audio in 1 day. The narrator was excellent which was a bonus. Great human interest story. This is a must read.

    "Very Good!"

    I love Lisa Scottoline, but when I saw this one wasn't about lawyers (more importantly, not about Rosato & Associates *sniff, sniff*), I almost didn't purchase it. Since it has been so long since I have listened to one of her books, I bit the bullet and got this one.

    I'm really glad I did. It is a slightly differnt path than she normally goes down, but I would have to say this was probably my favorite of all of her books - although I still want Rosato & Associates to come back soon!

    "Predictable plot, sappy dialogue"

    I had not read a book by this author before, nor had I heard anything by this narrator.

    The plot is, as said elsewhere, very predictable and contrived. There is lots (I mean LOTS) of sappy dialogue between the main character and her son and the main character and her love interest. The narrator should give up imitating little boys and Brazilian Romeos. The little boy sounded like ..well, hard to describe but the attempt was "piping" and the result was bad acting. The Brazilian Romeo was made to talk like a Transylvanian count or something...

    I could have stood being irritated by the narrator had the plot had any originality or pazzaz but imho, it did not.

    "Look Again"

    I love Lisa Scottoline and almost everything she has written has been fabulous. The narration by Mary Stuart Masterson was awesome - great story line - keep 'em coming, Lisa!

    "On the best seller list?"

    Oh my goodness. How did I get fooled into buying this book? I read some rave reviews here and saw that it was on a best seller list. My advice: if you like suspense or mystery, witty dialogue, interesting characters....this book is NOT for you. It is sappy like a romance novel and has an exceptionally slow moving story line.

    "A could-have-been-great novel"

    CAUTION: SEMI SPOILER. A compelling story, wonderfully human and believably suspenseful - to a point. It falls apart when the author begins to justify the trite ending by turning the child's biological parents into villains. I thought Scottaline was going to challenge herself, her heroine, and the other adults involved to find a humane and loving solution; that might have been unrealistic but not nearly so much as the contrived happily-ever-after. Worthwhile entertainment that ultimately disappoints.

    "Wonderful Book!!!"

    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!!

    "Literary License unchained"

    This 3-star book received an extra star because I am the father of an adopted daughter and my belief is that all adoptive parents harbor a degree of fear that an unknown legality could someday take their child from them. I think this book suffered because author Scottoline had to create too many implausible scenarios to allow for the outcomes she had in mind. For example, the husband of Ellen's adoption attorney was overly cooperative; Ellen's babysitter seemed to be available 24/7; the coincidental sighting of major characters at the Miami airport; the Missing Child card that set the whole story in motion in the first place etc. The published summary for the book already mentions a "happy ending" and knowing this shouldn't bother most listeners. It shouldn't be hard for most listeners to figure out how this happy ending will play out. At least it wasn't for me. Masterson did an adequate job with the narration, although her depiction of Lisa's son was especially grating. The book raises some ethical questions although the manner in which they were raised was not very believable. But, hey, it's fiction and if reality was key to enjoyable reading and listening, then there would be far fewer books being sold.

    "FRUSTRATING"

    Went on way too long - hard to believe one character could have so little sense and just when you think it is hard to do anything more insane - it gets worse.
