Having never wanted children of my own, I had a hard time identifying with Christine and Marcus' desire to have children but I could identify with their quest for the truth which is the crux of this novel. Marcus wants to confirm the identity of their donor by suing the sperm bank they used while Christine takes matters into her own hands.
Christine's quest for the truth takes her and the reader on a wild ride. It's not quite clear if the donor actually is the killer and I was guessing all through as to if he was the killer and the donor or just the donor and not the killer and what that all meant for Christine, Marcus and the family they're trying to build.
I would've liked a little more detail into Marcus' efforts with the lawsuit he filed. The lawyer he met with raised some very interesting questions about the whole business of sperm donation and the regulations it does and does not face.
In addition to using different means to find the truth, Marcus and Christine also debated the nature vs. nurture argument of raising a child who may be the biological product of a serial killer which was interesting and leaves the reader to opine for themselves.
The secondary characters were fabulous, Griff who unwitting aids Christine in her quest to find the truth about her donor is an endearing curmudgeon who I really hope Scottoline finds a place for in a subsequent novel.
Most Wanted was a thrilling, entertaining and thought provoking novel. Look for it in your local bookstore or at online retailers, you won't be disappointed. For more on Most Wanted and Lisa Scottoline, visit her website.
