Wanted for Serial Murder.

“Spellbinding. Another tour de force from Scottoline. It drew me in, in a single breath.” –Mary Kubica, bestselling author of The Good Girl

Christine Nilsson and her husband, Marcus, are desperate for a baby. Unable to conceive, they find themselves facing a difficult choice they had never anticipated. After many appointments with specialists, endless research, and countless conversations, they make the decision to use a donor.

Two months pass, and Christine is happily pregnant. But one day, she is shocked to see a young blond man on the TV news being arrested for a series of brutal murders—and the blond man bears an undeniable and uncanny resemblance to her donor.

Delving deeper to uncover the truth, Christine must confront a terrifying reality and face her worst fears. Riveting and fast-paced with the depth of emotionality that has garnered Lisa Scottoline legions of fans, the New York Times bestseller, Most Wanted, poses an ethical and moral dilemma: What would you do if the biological father of your unborn child was a serial killer?

    This book had so much potential with a great story idea, but the plot simply took a ridiculous turn. Don't waste your time.
  • Extremely disappointing!

    Most Wanted by Lisa Scottoline involves an interesting moral dilemma. Christine Nilsson, schoolteacher, and her husband, Marcus are finally pregnant. They have been trying to get pregnant for quite some time. After a round of tests, it is discovered that Marcus is the culprit. They decided to use a sperm bank and picked a man that looked like Marcus. Then Christine sees a news report about Zachary Jeffcoat being arrested for murder. This man, Zachary, looks just like their donor. Is it him? Christine is sure it is the same man and sets out to find the truth. If their donor really is a murderer, what will they do about their baby? Christine finds herself trying to prove Zachary’s innocence (hires him a lawyer). I found Most Wanted to be an unsurprising novel that contains quite a bit superfluous writing. The story goes on for way too long (I started skimming and wondering if the novel would ever end). The book shows a woman who is out of control and no one stops her (blamed on hormones). Most Wanted was less than acceptable. I am surprised that this book was written by Lisa Scottoline. I found the book to be expected (predictable) especially the ending. I kept hoping for something unexpected or surprising (like killing off the whiny husband). I give Most Wanted 2 out of 5 stars. The characters were not enjoyable (or likeable) especially the husband, Marcus (he had some serious issues). If you want a 101 on sperm banks, then you will want to read this book. If you are looking for a crime novel/thriller, then this is not the book for you. I received a complimentary copy of Most Wanted from NetGalley in exchange for an honest evaluation of the novel.

    If I hadn't bought it I wouldn't have read this most excruciating overly long, overly repetitive book. Not worth the time or money. What was L. Scottoline thinking when she decided to release this version? Good idea, poor execution for this author-she was sloppy!

    I loved this book. I felt the details were germane to character development. Sure there were some Hallmark moments, but I could overlook them. Very clever, very well written. A joy to read... couldn't put it down!
  • Tried to do too much.

    Interesting story line, though book attempted to do too much. Found all the excruciating details or subtle explanations unnecessary making it cheesy at times. Held my interest but found myself rushing to just get to end.
