Most Wanted – Lisa Scottoline
Mystery, thriller, Fiction.
Christine and Marcus, a happily married couple, decide to start a family. After a few years of trying, they go see what’s possibly going wrong. Marcus is infertile and they must rely on either adoption or sperm donation. Both agree to screen potential sperm donors and found one they want. The IVF is successful, and Christine is happily pregnant. Two months later, news on the television tell that the Nurse Killer was found and arrested. Christine sees a resemblance of the sperm donor and the Nurse Killer, and quickly becomes worried. Marcus tells her its nothing, at first, but later he sees with his own eyes. Marcus wants information and is willing to sue for the information whereas Christine doesn’t want to sue anyone. Christine goes to see this convicted man and was falsely pulled into some dangerous waters. Christine soon finds out that not everything is what it seems.
I enjoyed reading this novel and blindly chose this book based from the summary and author name. I have recently challenged myself to blindly choose more books (based off unfamiliarity of authors names just so that there is an unbiased opinion) and this one was a success. I wouldn’t have thought this was a mystery thriller based off the title alone, but the summary provided some clues. This book questions the basic morality of using a sperm donor who may or may not be a serial killer. I like fictional books that make me think about various topics in depth. I would recommend this novel for sure.
