Happily married, Christine and Marcus Nilsson tried fruitlessly for a year to grow their family. After visiting a specialist and determining the source of their fertility problems, they decide to get pregnant with the help of an anonymous sperm donor. Though difficult, this decision proves successful, and Christine is soon pregnant. At her good-bye party at the elementary school where she works, Christine finds her attention drawn to a breaking news story on the capture of an alleged serial killer in a nearby town. When the suspect's face flashes onto the screen, Christine is horrified to realize he looks exactly like their donor. Thus begins Christine's desperate search to determine if she is carrying the biological child of a psychopath.
VERDICT Scottoline (Corrupted; Every Fifteen Minutes) has mastered the art of writing the story of an average mom forced into extraordinary action. Her relatable characters inspire empathy, which lets readers find themselves sucked into typically unbelievable situations. As has come to be expected, this is a page-turner that will satisfy the Scottoline faithful.
