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.


  • Loved the suspense

    By Boundless Book Reviews
    I loved the suspense! Oh! And the twists! Wow! Exciting book! I totally recommend it! The story starts when Ellen gets a missing child flyer in the mail that looks just like her 3 year old. How is that possible? He’s her son; she rescued him from the ICU. He was abandoned by his mother; had a heart condition and required a lot of extra care; the nurses assumed it was too much for the young mother. Ellen met Will when he was a year old while she was doing a story. She loved him from the moment his beautiful eyes met hers; she was drawn back to the hospital to visit every day, sometimes more and once a day. It didn’t take long for her to start the adoption process. The biological mother and father signed away their rights and he was hers. It was almost too easy; as smooth as an adoption can be. My father used to tell me “if something seems too good to be true, that’s probably because it isn’t;” I know simple advice, but true on so many occasions. Once Ellen see’s the flyer, she can’t get it out of her mind; she loves her son so much; she can’t imagine life without him, but she knows doing the right thing isn’t always easy. The toughest decision a mother will ever have to make is weighing on her shoulders. Should she go to the cops? Should she learn all she can about the lost boy first? Should she just say nothing and keep him to herself? Luckily, this mother was also a reporter, and her reporter instincts took over; she researched, regardless of where to or how long she had to travel for answers, she would stop at nothing. However, some questions are better left unanswered. Ellen uncovers a truth that is unbelievable. The suspense, action and mystery blew my mind. Overall, this was a great story! I had the audio version, narrated by Mary Stuart Masterson; so you know the narration was perfect! I found myself leaving early for appointments so I could listen to more while I waited. Finally, I had to bring it in and listen to it while cleaning. I had to find out what happened and could NOT wait! This is a 5+ boundless star book. I absolutely loved it! On a personal note, even being in the process of starting an adoption, I still loved it! LOL! It didn’t scare me away....Beth

    I am sorry to say I did not enjoy it. It could have been much shorter, too many wasted words. Also I did not feel she had that close connection she tried to convey with Will.
  • Simply put...amazing.

    Just knew that cat was going to come in handy! My cleaning this morning had to be put off as I couldn't stop reading until the end.
  • Not too impressed

    By Maikaddy
    The story line had real potential, but this author was very long winded in certain areas of the book, particularly when the character travels to Florida to gather DNA evidence. I got so bored that I had to skip several of the unnecessary paragraphs. Also, some of the premises were a bit far-fetched and inaccurate. To me it felt like reading a cheap romance novel without the romance.
