Look Again

Lisa Scottoline

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?||The child in the photo looks exactly like Ellen's adopted son, Will. But how could it be if the adoption was lawful? Everything inside her tells her to deny what she sees. But Ellen won't rest until she finds 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?||Ellen makes the wrenching decision to investigate, following a trail of clues no one was meant to uncover. And when she digs too deep, she risks losing her life?and that of the son she loves.

Annotation:
A mother's love is the most powerful, eternal truth there is, but what if it is based on a lie? Lisa Scottoline, known for her pulse-pounding thrillers, adds some brain and a lot of heart to the adrenaline in this novel, which uses a Jodi Picoult-like premise to aim at a wider audience. Philadelphia journalist Ellen Gleason discovers that her adopted son, Will, may be a missing child from Florida. As she begins to investigate, she finds a disturbing number of dead ends and dead bodies. It soon becomes apparent that there are greater forces at work, and that she and Will are a smaller part of a grand, evil scheme--which means they too are disposable. The only way for Ellen to protect Will is to expose the malicious conspiracy, but the closer she comes to the truth, the closer she may be to losing her beloved son.
Author Bio
Lisa Scottoline
Lisa Scottoline is best known for her bestselling series featuring the women of the all-female law firm Rosato & Associates. Although the books are generally described as legal thrillers, she told one journalist, "What I'm doing is writing stories about women who care about justice. They are women who think about the difference between right and wrong, what's legal and illegal, ethical and unethical, moral and immoral. . . . So it doesn't matter what the character's occupation is." Scottoline, an avid fan of Nancy Drew mysteries while growing up, was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and raised in the nearby suburb of Bala Cynwyd. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1976 with a bachelor's degree in English. (Her focus was on the contemporary American novel, and among her professors was Philip Roth.) In 1981 she completed her studies at the University of Pennsylvania School of Law and embarked upon a career as a civil litigator. In 1986, soon after her daughter, Francesca, was born, Scottoline left her firm for the life of a stay-at-home mom. She subsequently began to write the first Rosato & Associates novel, EVERYWHERE THAT MARY WENT, which was published in 1994--after a long string of painful rejection notices. Since then, she has written numerous other books in the series, as well as several stand-alone novels and memoirs. Additionally, she pens a regular newspaper column, "Chick Wit," along with Francesca. Twice divorced, Scottoline, who has been a president of the Mystery Writers of America, lives in an 18th-century stone farmhouse on more than 40 acres of land in Pennsylvania's Chester County, where she hosts annual fan-appreciation gatherings. (Attendees are chosen by lottery.) Sharing the property are several dogs, cats, horses, and chickens.
