Staff Reviews


Lisa Scottoline excels at giving readers real characters with real situations and she makes us think "what would I do in this situation?" Christine thought she would never be pregnant because her husband, Marcus, has no viable sperm. After months of agonizing over the many sperm donors available, they pick one and she is now two months pregnant. A time of joy, until she sees a TV news broadcast and realizes the man arrested as a serial killer looks just like their sperm Donor #3319. This is a very frustrating journey with tension increasing page by page as Christine gets more involved in the search to find out the truth. Amazing storytelling and the kind of book that once you start it, it stays in your mind constantly until you can finish it.

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

Donor 3319 Profile:
Tall. Blonde. Blue eyes.
Medical Student.
Wanted for Serial Murder.

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 killer?
