I found the plot a little unbelievable...hard to believe Christine's naivety and the lengths she went to help the sperm donor.

Enjoyed this book. I am glad I discovered this author because her books catch your interest right from the first chapter. Some of Scottoline’s overdone descriptions seem to me to be unnecessary and she seems to like the words “khaki” and “golf shirts” to descibe mens attire in all her books. Really? Other than that love the twists and turns to keep you engagd in the book. Great storylines!

This is another terrific novel of suspense by Lisa Scottoline. Christine & Marcus Nilsson discover that Marcus cannot produce viable sperm - crushing their dreams of having a baby of their own. They make the difficult decision to use a sperm donation to enable them to become parents. When Christine finally conceives, she sees a TV clip of a man arrested for the brutal serial murders of three nurses. She is convinced he is the donor, judging from his background and the picture provided by the sperm bank (the sperm bank won't reveal the identity of the donor because of privacy regulations).
Marcus fears the donor is a psychopath and their unborn child will inherit the same tendency to kill. He wants Christine to have an abortion. Their different opinions on this cause great friction in their marriage. What follows is Christine's quest to meet the donor and find out if he really is the killer and the donor.
Great read with an ending that I was happy with!

This was an OK read. I got through it fairly quickly. The story was a little unrealistic and I felt Christine went way beyond what someone would actually do in the same situation. The ending was rather abrupt and seemed rushed.

Not my favourite Scottoline book but okay. The ending was predictable. It was just okay...

Reading Lisa Scottoline stand-alones is a lot like eating donuts. So good while you're eating them but afterwards soooo much regret. Newly pregnant Christine Nilsson is watching the news when she sees a man arrested for a serial killing and recognizes him as her sperm donor. Proactive (or nutcase) Christine confronts him in prison and decides he's innocent (he has to be, otherwise her baby would be tainted). She gets him a lawyer, investigates and on and on. Books like this drive me crazy with how incompetent they make the police out to be. And don't get me started with how poorly the author paints her male characters. Christine's husband is a real putz (but girlfriends are golden). Scottoline's also getting lazy with her writing. She must have used "made a beeline" at least 4-5 times and she always has some factual errors that are minor but make me crazy.

Most Wanted got me thinking about different things. How would I feel if I couldn't have kids? Which psychological disorders are hereditary? If I used donor sperm what would I want to know about the donor? What if the donor is a serial killer??
Is donor 3319 the Nurse Killer? Sometimes I was convinced he was and sometimes there was more than reasonable doubt. But it kept me engaged throughout

Most Wanted - What would you do if the sperm donor for your unborn child was a serial killer? Another great read from Lisa Scottoline.

In general I like Lisa Scottoline's books and this one was no exception. However, the plot seemed rather bizarre. Granted in today's reproductive world it was realistic; but somewhat melodramatic. It was only because of Scottoline's talents as a writer that she manged to keep the thread of the plot and the characters together.
