Metadata for Wrong Book

I just ran into something. I have at least one book, that when I download metadata, it picks the wrong book. Same title, different author.

The title and author are correct in the Calibre file before I start, but if I download metadata, it changes the author.

The book is Extreme Measures by Vince Flynn. I keep getting metadata for the same tilte book, but by Michael Palmer.

And considering I also read Michael Palmer, this could get very interesting.

What I do in situations where I want to force a choice is copy and paste the ISBN from amazon. ISBN trumps everything else when retrieving metadata, so it'll get the right one.

That did it, thanks.

I guess the first time it DLd the metadata, it grabbed the wrong ISBN.

It would be nice, if at some point, Calibre would inform you if there were some abiguity about which book it reallly is, and allow you to choose.
