From the New York Times bestselling author and winner of the Edgar Award

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 looks exactly like her adopted son, Will.

All her instincts tell her to deny the similarity between her son and the photo, for she knows his adoption was lawful. But she's a journalist and can't stop thinking about the image until she figures out the truth. Moreover, she can't shake off the question: if Will rightfully belongs to someone else, should she keep him or give him up?

As she investigates, uncovering clues no one was meant to discover, she digs too deep, endangering her own life - and that of the son she loves.

In this emotionally charged, heart-pounding thriller Lisa Scottoline has broken new ground. Look Again examines the very essence of parenthood and raises a question that will haunt readers long after they have finished the last page: 'What would I do?'
