Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of Come Home comes a riveting thriller about one man's search for his wife's killer.
When Dr. Mike Scanlon is called to serve as an army doctor in Afghanistan, he’s acutely aware of the dangers he’ll face and the hardships it will bring his wife, Chloe, and their newborn baby. And deep inside, he doesn’t think of himself as a hero, but a healer.
However, in an ironic turn of events, as Mike operates on a wounded soldier in a war-torn country, Chloe dies at home in the suburbs, in an apparently freak household accident. Devastated, he returns home to bury her, only to discover that the life he left behind has fallen apart. He’s a stranger to his baby girl, and his medical practice has downsized in his absence. Worse, he learns a shocking secret that sends him into a downward spiral.
Grief-stricken, Mike makes decisions upon returning to Afghanistan which will change his life forever. It’s not until he comes home for good that he grasps the gravity of his actions, and realizes he must fight the most important battle of his life, to reclaim his life and his daughter. Along the way, he discovers that everything is not as it seems, and he learns ugly truths about those he loves the most, as well as the true meaning of heroism.

Not at all like Lisa Scottoline

What would have made Don't Go better?

This story is insipid. It seems as tho she came up with the premise years ago & altered the story to fit present day war. There's no reason to like or care about any of the charactors.

Would you ever listen to anything by Lisa Scottoline again?

I have listened to all her previous novels. This book is NOT representative of her work.

What three words best describe Jeremy Davidson’s performance?

Fine, unexciting, unmemorable

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The books opens with a bang & the rest is all fizzle.

Think I expected something different

I have never read a book by Lisa Scottoline before. This one sounded as though it would be a good, even poignant-sounding story. Began listening eagerly, then noticed that while the premise of a soldier coming home to his wife's funeral after her unexpected death, even with some elements of mystery involved, sounded enticingly good, it, well...wasn't. At least not my cup of tea.

I've surely listened to worse, but it felt flat somehow. The narration bothered me, but Jeremy Davidson could not create a better reading than the book itself allowed. This is undoubtedly as much a matter of my listening taste as anything else. I rather imagine others will like it better, but I found it to be a disappointment. I found it hard to listen to. Kept waiting for it to improve, but it didn't. It should have been good. All the elements were there; somehow it simply did not click for me. Writing too simplistic, too dry, even though the plot line had a lot of promise. Just my opinion though.
