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 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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!!
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.
