Don't Go

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.

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.

    "This is a good listen"
    Any additional comments?

    The ending was a little too "precious" for my taste, although it was the only one most readers would accept. The book kept me alternately pissed off at the hero and sympathizing with him. Some good twists and turns.

    "An Enjoyable Listen"

    I thought the book started very strong. It does get a little long in the middle with one too many characters and plot twists introduced. The ending was not shocking but was decent. It was a solid audiobook. I did prefer "Keep Quiet", and I will definitely keep exploring Scottoline offerings.

    "THIS AUTHOR KNOWS HOW TO RUIN A REAL GOOD STORY"
    What did you like best about Don't Go? What did you like least?

    I LIKED THE PLOT VERY MUCH. I DID NOT LIKE THE WAY THINGS GOT WRAPPED UP IN THE END. IT RUINED THE WHOLE BOOK.


    What was most disappointing about Lisa Scottoline’s story?

    THE ENDING. IT WAS JUST TOO MUCH. THIS IS THE SECOND BOOK I READ BY THIS AUTHOR THAT WAS VERY ENJOYABLE THRU THE BOOK WHERE THE LAST FEW CHAPTERS MESSED THE WHOLE THING UP.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    THERE WERE MANY ENJOYABLE SCENES. I CANT PICK A FAVOITE.


    Was Don't Go worth the listening time?

    YES IT WAS EVEN THO I GAVE IT A POOR RATING. BECAUSE THRUOUT MOST OF THE BOOK IT WAS EXTREMELY ENJOYABLE.


    Any additional comments?

    THIS AUTHOR HAS SUCH POTENTIAL IN HER BOOKS. BUT I DOUBT I WILL BUY ANOTHER ONE BECAUSE THE PLOT WAS FINE UNTIL THEY COMPLICATED IT. ANOTHER BOOK WITH A MURDER IN IT THAT ADDED NOTHING TO THE STORY.

    "Not Your Usual Lisa Scottoline"

    I was very disappointed in this book. First half was OK. Ending was terrible.........unbelievable characters and actions. Narrator was OK for some parts but definitely not OK for others. French accent didn't bother me as much as the Philadelphia accent, which was demeaning. I'm from Philadelphia and I don't speak that way.

    "A real life story."
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Top five out of hundreds.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    As a veteran, I am already familiar with the subject matter. I love the way the author reveal the inner struggles of a soldier in a way where civilians can understand some effects of war.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    I appreciate the fact that the author didn't paint a picture of living happily ever after. Love the details of reality without gore.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Really nothing but if you research any story you'd find exaggerated points.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    An absolute must read. This would be a great assigned reading for high school students.

    "Is this really a Scottoline book?"

    I have read almost all Scottoline books and was looking forward to this coming out.
    It does not FEEL like a Scottoline writing and I'm not sure I will even finish --it is so bad.
    The narrator's French female voices are terrible and extremely annoying.
    The premise that a podiatrist would be functioning as a general surgeon out in the field is ludicrous.
    Wish I had read reviews BEFORE purchasing!

    "Nice Read"

    I really liked this story and thought I had it figured out a few times only to be proven wrong. I think the ending was rushed, but overall I really liked the book and the story.
