“Lisa Scottoline is one of the very best writers at work today. Don't Go proves it once again. This is a story that is heavily muscled, emotional, and relevant. They don't come any better.” ―Michael Connelly
“This stand-alone from Scottoline effectively tugs at the emotions.” ―Publisher's Weekly
“In her first book featuring a male protagonist, Scottoline spins a compelling drama that reads like the literary lovechild of Jodi Picoult and Nicholas Sparks. Readers will fall in love with this war vet father who fights seemingly insurmountable odds, and his powerfully addictive story will haunt them long after the final page.” ―Library Journal on Don't Go
“Scottoline offers readers a nuanced, multi-dimensional portrait of a young man in crisis, couched in a page-turner of a story that will appeal to her many fans.” ―Book Reporter on Don't Go
“This story grabbed me from the very first chapter…This is a story about family, loss, love, dedication, conviction, addiction, betrayal, redemption and so much more. It's a bit of a: thriller, mystery, legal drama, war story and romance. It's real and human. The characters are so complete and full. These are people that I know, that you know. People that live in our neighborhood.” ―Crochet Nirvana on Don't Go
“This is a powerful story about how soldiers are changed forever and the difficulties of returning to civilian life. There is also the mystery surrounding Mike's wife's death, which is well-written, and the courtroom battle for the custody of Emily, which is heart-wrenching. Scottoline really delivers with this book.” ―Parkersburg News & Sentinel on Don't Go
“Don't Go marks the biggest step forward yet by this great storyteller -- a novel about war, and the toll it takes on decent men.” ―CT News
“A compelling and suspenseful thriller. It will keep you guessing right up to the unexpected end…I just couldn't put it down!” ―Portland Book Review on Don't Go
“A deeply emotional book that explores complex family dynamics. The story powerfully conveys what it really means to be a hero.” ―Deseret News on Don't Go

I'm also new to author Lisa Scottoline but I'd still been expecting more, or maybe just a more polished story from a "bestselling" author. As it was this felt like a first book with immature writing and stilted, repetitive and just painful dialogue that I struggled to get through without rolling my eyes. There are also some very obviously placed red herrings throughout and this is coming from someone who doesn't usually read mysteries, but I was often like, yeah that's probably a bad idea.
That's not to say this was entirely terrible, mostly just disappointing because it had so much promise and so many good ideas.
Don't Go starts with our main characters wife dying on her kitchen from a knife wound, (this is not a spoiler) someone comes to the door but instead of helping they leave. We then switch over to our main character Dr. Mike Scanlon, who is a serving as an army doctor in Afghanistan. I really enjoyed the army sections of this book (which take up a large section), they're obviously been well researched and you get a real feel for the living conditions, the surgeries, the comradely with the other doctors and the hardships and horror.Read more ›
Ann just could not put it down. Enjoy is not the word. From the first word to the last dot, she has only pride for LISA. she's looking forward for her next book.

This was an easy airplane read. Not a lot of depth and somewhat predictable. I have to admit that I did want to continue reading till the end.Published 22 months ago by tirza
