Review

“Mary Stuart Masterson's precise diction builds suspense in this tale of a reporter investigating a missing-child case that may be linked to her own adopted son.” ―As part of People magazine's "Three Reasons to Plan That Road Trip"

“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.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Narrated by actress Mary Stuart Masterson, Look Again is a suspenseful story that tugs at the heart, as listeners follow Ellen's determined search to uncover Will's mysterious history, raising questions of where he belongs--and who he belongs to.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Not many audios make you drive out of your way just to keep the disks turning. This is one: suspenseful, believable, thought-provoking and, yes, thrilling.” ―The Dallas Morning News

“Actress Mary Stuart Masterson's warm, precise voice enlists the listener's sympathy for Ellen, even in her most boneheaded, self-sabotaging moments, and also provides convincing accents for the secondary characters.” ―AudioFile

“Ms. Masterson's... voicing of Will was perfect, and editor Marcello's voice was swoon worthy.” ―Deadly Pleasures

“Well-known film star Masterson reads the heart-wrenching story with a quiet confidence that belies Ellen's struggles... The story deals with a gripping moral dilemma, and Masterson pulls listeners in quite masterfully.” ―Booklist

Book Description

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.

Top Customer Reviews

To me, the best novels require you to live inside the narrator's skin and feel her or his situation personally. Where Ms. Scottoline's lawyer stories entertain with attractive characters and interesting problems, Look Again grabs you by the throat and never lets go. It's a wild ride.

It's difficult to write about this story without providing lots of spoilers. I think I've avoided that fault better than the jacket cover's copy does. So please bear with me if I'm not very forthcoming about the details of the story.

Ellen Gleeson is a reporter who feels the pain of her subjects. In one case, she took an extraordinary step and adopted a very sick youngster (with an armload of unpaid medical bills) whom she had met during a story, despite being far from wealthy and unmarried. By now little Will, now recovered and healthy, has become her whole life.

The ground starts to shake when she looks at a flyer advertising missing children and sees an age-updated image that looks just like Will. It's a bad time to be distracted. Her employer is about to lay off newsroom staff and Ellen needs the job. A colleague seems to be out to undercut her.

But wouldn't you be just a little bit curious? So was she. And her curiosity drew her deeper into a dilemma about what the right thing is to do. Should she look further? Should she contact the parents? Should she just drop the whole thing?

As a reporter, she has research skills and nerve that would put most of us to shame. How will she solve the mystery? What will she discover?

Throughout the book, you'll be imagining your children at three and how you would feel if you had adopted them and doubt began to grow in your mind about whose child he or she is. It's a very unsettling feeling.

I enjoyed reading this book...and it had the happy, if unexpected, ending that I prefer. (I am a sap for "living happily ever after".) I don't know how realistic the premise of the story is: mother of adopted baby finds his picture on missing children flyer and "knows" it is right to find out if it is him, regardless of the consequences for her. It caught my interest, hook, line and sinker. I often flip to the last pages of a mystery novel to find out what the ending is but for some reason, I didn't do it with this book. The author had me intrigued and I wanted to be surprised. It would be a great vacation read...it is well balanced between cerebral and fluffy. One of my criteria for a "good" book is if I have to think about who to pass it on to, who will "get it": Look Again meets this criteria.

Are you one of those people who looks at the faces in the ads for missing children? I am. So is Ellen Gleeson. Someday maybe I will recognize the face of a child in the neighbourhood and be instrumental in reuniting a child with his/her family. Never would I expect to see the face of my own child staring back at me. Ellen didn't expect it either, but there it was. The boy in the poster looked exactly like her son, Will. The reporter in her wouldn't let Ellen rest until she had explored the possibilities - and what she discovered is the stuff of every mother's nightmares.

If you have read any of Lisa Scottoline's other books, you will know that she is eminently readable. Her style includes a lot of dialog and short chapters. I read the book in one sitting. Partly because of the writing and partly because I got so caught up in the mystery. There were lots of twists and turns, lots of roadblocks to get through and just when you think you've got it solved ... well, you don't.

The ending bothered me a little just because I am not a fan of pat endings. On the other hand I was pleased with Ellen's generosity and heart at the end and all through the book. Just an excellent read.

A fast moving and tense thriller with lots of unexpected twists. I felt I was very much part of the book, and as a parent I went through the roller coaster of emotions that Ellen (the mother) went through. Very hard to put down and it makes you think - what would I do in the same situation?! A great read!

Lisa makes a book that keeps you interested and with the twist you really don't see anything. When you figured the book(you think) it is totally not what you expect. Its an excellent book to read, I really enjoyed her books. I recommend this book to who enjoy mystery with a twist.

Good premise but the story became predictable and unrealistic. I think that this author churns out too many novels to be original in her storylines . The plots and characters change but the rest remains the same.
