Publisher's Summary

In Ava’s dreams, her son, Noah, looks just the way she remembers him: a sweet two-year-old in rolled-up jeans and a red sweatshirt. When Ava wakes, the agonizing truth hits her all over again. Noah went missing two years ago, and his body has never been found. Almost everyone, including Ava’s semi-estranged husband, Wyatt, assumes the boy drowned after falling off the dock near their Church Island home.
Ava has spent most of the past two years in and out of Seattle mental institutions, shattered by grief and unable to recall the details of Noah’s disappearance. Now she’s back at Neptune’s Gate, the family estate she once intended to restore to its former grandeur. Slowly, her strength is returning. But as Ava’s mind comes back into focus, her suspicions grow. Despite their apparent concern, Ava can’t shake the feeling that her family and her psychologist know more than they’re saying. But are they really worried for her well-being - or anxious about what she might discover?
Unwilling to trust those around her, Ava secretly visits a hypnotist to try and restore her memories. But the strange visions and night terrors keep getting worse. Ava is sure she’s heard Noah crying in the nursery, and glimpsed him walking near the dock. Is she losing her mind, or is Noah still alive? Ava won’t stop until she gets answers, but the truth is more dangerous than she can imagine. And the price may be more than she ever thought to pay….

Can't stop listening....

I don't know what a previous reviewer was thinking when he said this book was a waste of money. Thankfully I didn't listen to him being a prior Lisa Jackson fan. All the previous reviewer focused on was the writing style.

I thought "You Don't Want to Know" was a great thriller with so many twists and turns right to the very end that I was fascinated by the storyline. I couldn't wait to see who did it and how they were connected to the main character, Ava Garrison. One reviewer said he was tired of the main character's mood swings, etc. That was almost the entire point of what was going on in the book. Not saying anymore about that so I don't give away the plot.

If you want a good psychological thriller, then listen to this book.
