Reviews

Single mother and journalist Ellen Gleeson is unsettled by a "Have You Seen This Child?" flyer that features a child disconcertingly similar to her adopted son. Curiosity compels her to investigate further, and as evidence spirals closer to the truth, Ellen's horror rises as she uncovers broken trails and untimely deaths that may or may not be related to her own situation. As skillful as Scottoline's thriller is, it is enhanced by Mary Stuart Masterson's performance. Her characterizations are distinct and evocative, her tone remains smooth, even while ratcheting up the tension and suspense. Listeners will be wholly absorbed by this moving story. A St. Martin's hardcover (Reviews, Feb. 16). (Apr.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

Macmillan's first audiobook by Scottoline includes an interview with the author; Mary Stuart Masterson reads. Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

..".barn-burning crossover novel about every adoptive mother's worst nightmare. . . . her best book yet."--"Kirkus Reviews" (Starred Review) "Bestseller Scottoline ... scores another bull's-eye with this terrifying thriller about an adoptive parent's worst fear. . . . Scottoline expertly ratchets up the tension."--"Publishers Weekly "(Starred Review) "Scottoline's edgy and emotional thriller proves once again why she's such an accomplished author. Any story dealing with the kidnapping of a child is heart-wrenching, but in Scottoline's capable hands readers experience a myriad of feelings -- shock, anger, sadness and relief. A great read!"--"RT Book Reviews" "Scottoline's best novel to date will have faithful fans and new readers singing her praises. Highly recommended."--"Library Journal""" "Her plots are as lean and swift as a scull on the Schuylkill River in her native Philadelphia."--"The Washington Post""" ""Look Again," if I may be so bold, is probably Lisa Scottoline's best novel. It's honest and hugely emotional, with very real characters who you care about, and will remember long after you finish this terrific book."-- James Patterson
"There was something about this book that just sucked me in, especially on an emotional level...this is some of Lisa's finest work."-- Billie Bloebaum, Powell's Books
"A timely and topical thriller...that tugs at the heart at the same moments that it ratchets up the tension."-- Joe Drabyak, Chester County Book & Music Company "A page-turner that challenges every aspect of motherhood. Lisa Scottoline's "Look Again" should appeal to fans of thrillers, romantic suspense, and provocative/issue novelists like Anita Shreve and Jodi Picoult."-- Geoffrey B. Jennings, Rainy Day Books "[The book is] laced with tears and laughter as we witness the anguish, joy, terror, and resolve of a mother, under siege."-- Barbara Peters, The Poisoned Pen "The pace never lets up and "Look Again" is full of surprises. . . . Look Again is a guaranteed great time, not only for all longtime Scottoline readers but for newcomers who will definitely become fans."--The Mystery Reader
