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
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.
I have listened to all her previous novels. This book is NOT representative of her work.
Fine, unexciting, unmemorable
The books opens with a bang & the rest is all fizzle.
Think I expected something different
