Abduction

Definitely a plot-driven novel. A boring, not-realistic, and predictable one at that. Dialogues feel unnatural. "Her best novel," quotes James Patterson on the cover. Hmm. ( )

In this Scottoline mystery, I was putting myself in place of Ellen, the young journalist, who is troubled by a missing child brochure that looks very much like her adopted son. Would I have told anyone? Would I have done so much work on my own as Ellen did without telling anyone? This is another example of often things are not always as they seem. I follow Scottline's writing and this one was enjoyable. I will say I'm not fond of how this time the author reminds the reader of things previously mentioned. But this is an interesting plot speaking from someone who was adopted. ( )

Scottoline is one of my favorite authors. Her characters are always satisfyingly real and the plots can twist in really surprising ways but never unbelievably so. I really connect with her characters to the point where I start feeling stressed out about their stress and have to remember that I'm "just" reading a book. The only disappointment is having to wait a whole year for a new one to come out! ( )

This is the first book I have read that was written by this Author, and my understanding is that they are not new to the published works scene; I’m sorry, and apologize now to the Author, but that was not the impression I received from reading this book.

From a character stand point they were written in such a way that really did not make me empathise, connect or want to get to know them more deeply. The main protagonist is one that will have every single Mother that reads this book, painting placards and marching on the Author’s house, and scenes involving her became long and drawn out with her angst and a look at some rather dull side stories. I felt when reading this character the Author could have made her so much more. As a single mother the reader was left to figure out why she was motivated to do the things she did and not just rely on the 'Mother Bear' cliché.

From reading the synopsis this novel had all the makings of a great and thrilling read, but in the end the way in which it was executed was so disappointing to me that I was glad when I turned the final page. There were several editing errors that normally I would have dismissed, but in this case the plot line was not that strong to begin with, and I found these to be very distracting.

If you are a fan of this Author you may enjoy this book, but otherwise it would make a great beach or poolside read, and be the kind of book you won’t mind leaving behind when your vacation is over. I doubt that I will be reading anymore by this Author.

Starred Review. Bestseller Scottoline (Lady Killer) scores another bull's-eye with this terrifying thriller about an adoptive parent's worst fear—the threat of an undisclosed illegality overturning an adoption. The age-progressed picture of an abducted Florida boy, Timothy Braverman, on a have you seen this child? flyer looks alarmingly like Philadelphia journalist Ellen Gleeson's three-year-old son, Will, whom she adopted after working on a feature about a pediatric cardiac care unit. Ellen, who jeopardizes her newspaper job by secretly researching the Braverman case, becomes suspicious when she discovers the lawyer who handled her adoption of Will has committed suicide. Meanwhile, Will's supposed birth mother, Amy Martin, dies of a heroin overdose, and Amy's old boyfriend turns out to look like the man who kidnapped Timothy. Scottoline expertly ratchets up the tension as the desperate Ellen flies to Miami to get DNA samples from Timothy's biological parents. More shocks await her back home.
