Look Again by Lisa Scottoline
Look Again is a solid thriller from Lisa Scottoline. Journalist Ellen Gleeson catches a chance glimpse of a "missing child" postcard that looks startling like her adopted son, Will. Unable to dismiss the coincidence, Ellen risks her career and her family to dig up the truth. Scottoline's books are always very readable, and this one is no exception. It's got a mystery, a fast-paced plot, engaging characters, a moral dilemma, and even a little romance. Yes, things are tied up a little too neatly in the end, but this is popular fiction, not great literature. I finished it in a single sitting.
