Book Description

April 9 2013
Bestselling author Lisa Scottoline has thrilled millions with her emotionally-charged novels that feature strong women exploring the boundaries of family, justice, and love.   In Don’t Go, she breaks new ground and delivers the story of a soldier who discovers what it means to be a man, a father, and ultimately, a hero.

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 cause his wife Chloe and newborn baby.  And deep inside, he doesn’t think of himself as a warrior, 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 apparent household accident.  Devastated, he returns home to bury her, only to discover that the life he left behind has fallen apart.  His medical practice is in jeopardy, and he is a complete stranger to the only family he has left - his precious baby girl.  Worse, he learns a shocking secret that sends him into a downward spiral.

Ultimately, Mike realizes that the most important battle of his life faces him on the home front and he’ll have to put it all on the line to save what’s dearest to him – his family.  Gripping, thrilling, and profoundly emotional, Don’t Go is Lisa Scottoline at her finest.

Product Description


“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

Praise for Don't Go:

“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

“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

“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

“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

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

“A deeply emotional book that explores complex family dynamics. The story powerfully conveys what it really means to be a hero.” —Deseret News

The author offered strong visuals. The characters became real and engaging. You got hints of what would be next and you wanted to keep reading but only to find out what you predicted wasn't quite right. You had to know the truth and it kept you engaged from start to finish. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone.

This was pretty good, but I wanted to like it a lot more than I actually did. The story premise had me excited and the cover is great but the execution was just all over the place, with too many story ideas all thrown together so that ultimately none of them really work. I've also yet to figure out what this book was trying to be; a murder mystery, a child custody story, a military memoir, a PTSD recovery, a legal thriller? It's all of these things.

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.

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.
