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!
Single mom and reporter Ellen Gleeson finds a card in her mail asking, "Have You Seen This Child?" and she's shocked when she recognizes the boy: He looks identical to her son, Will. Ellen adopted 3-year-old Will two years ago as an only child. She was writing a story on nurses in the pediatric cardiac intensive-care unit, and Will was being treated for a hole in his septum. Ellen felt a strong connection to Will and later adopted him from a young girl.
As much as Ellen wants to ignore the card, the reporter in her longs to unearth the truth. Ellen's hunt leads her on a painful and dangerous journey that has devastating consequences for both her and her son. (ST. MARTIN'S, Apr., 352 pp., $26.95)
