Journalist Ellen Gleeson loves her adopted son, Will, with all of her heart and soul. They found each other when he was an infant. Will, hospitalized with a serious heart condition, was abandoned by his mother. Ellen saw him while researching a story, fell in love with the tiny tot and became his mother through a legal adoption. Now Will has grown into a happy, healthy preschooler.

The end of this perfect life started with a mass mailing “Have you seen this child?” postcard. Could the little boy be Will? If the missing boy was Will, could Ellen ignore his parents’ pleas for his safe return?

The journalist in her has to investigate the possibility that something was horribly wrong with the adoption. The deeper she searches the more bad things turn up, including dead bodies.

Is she willing to risk everything, including losing her son to find the truth?

Scottoline is one of my favorite authors. This book in particular so good I read it fast, and then was unhappy to have it end. Anyone who has a child or loves a child is pulled into the heart wrenching fear Ellen is experiencing. If you’ve never read one of Scottoline’s books, start here – you’ll become an instant fan of this seasoned author.
