Publisher's Summary

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, Most Wanted poses an ethical and moral dilemma: What would you do if the biological father of your unborn child was a serial killer?

When did Scottoline become Picoult?

What happened to Scottoline's flawed characters (Bennie, Mary, Judy) and sly humor? This main character is bland, sincere and boring. Not to mention unbelievable. Unlike her earlier character driven work, this novel feels like Social issues 101. Even Julia Whelan's excellent narration couldn't make this book suspenseful.

Author spoiled her own book

Would you try another book from Lisa Scottoline and/or Julia Whelan?

The narrator is mostly ok. I have listened to her before, but I kept thinking of a villain from another book when she was doing a certain character in this one (won't say, don't want to spoil it). I realize that a narrator only has so many voices but it was really annoying mixing up the books.


What could Lisa Scottoline have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

She needs a much better finish. A bit more attention to detail would also help, so that the plot would be a bit more believable.


Have you listened to any of Julia Whelan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to Julia Whelan before, and she is really bad with male characters.


If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No


Any additional comments?

With the flaws I have mentioned, I would still have liked this book if the author had given the conclusion more thought. Very disappointing conclusion. She took a short-cut by introducing a character out of left-field, as well as having a final chase scene that was very poorly constructed. So for 11 hours I was fine, but I wish the finish would have lived up to the rest of the book.
