Good Minds Suggest: Lisa Scottoline's Favorite Books About Male Infertility

Posted by Goodreads on April 4, 2016

Calling it a worst-case donor situation might be an understatement. In Most Wanted, Lisa Scottoline's unnerving new thriller, a woman decides to use a donor to conceive when she discovers that her husband is infertile. The twist? After becoming pregnant, she receives the appalling news: The father of her unborn child is a recently arrested serial killer.

Scottoline is an Edgar award-winning author of more than 20 books, including the bestselling thrillers Look Again, Save Me, and Every Fifteen Minutes. She tells Goodreads about the inspiration behind Most Wanted: "I was fascinated by the issue of male infertility, which gets far less attention—and government regulation—than female infertility." She shares the books that gave her insight into this often overlooked topic.
