Review of AFTER ANNA by Lisa Scottoline

Available tomorrow, April 10th, at your favorite bookseller.

Maggie Ippoliti is happily married to doctor Noah Alderman and helping him to raise his son Caleb. Then, she gets the surprise of her life when her daughter Anna, from a previous marriage, contacts her. She travels to Anna’s elite boarding school for a visit and is even more pleasantly surprised when Anna expresses the desire to come live with her and go to a public school. Anna hasn’t seen her mom Maggie since she was a toddler, but the connection now between the two is instant. The book switches back and forth between what is going on in Maggie’s life and what is happening with Noah. Anna ends up dead not long after she comes to live with Maggie and Noah, and Noah is charged with the murder. The pace of the novel is fast and the dialogue and courtroom scenes are realistic. The twists are surprising, and you will find yourself asking, “What just happened here?” The clues are all there, if you read carefully. This is another well-written psychological thriller by a master of the genre!
