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.

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.

    Story
    "The Ultimate Liar"
    What did you love best about Don't Go?

    The bizarre, intense behavior of the female lead. It's amazing what she was purported to do without anyone being the wiser. It was equally amazing that the husband could go back to her, ever for obvious reasons. No baby could thrive with those two as parents.


    If you’ve listened to books by Lisa Scottoline before, how does this one compare?

    This book held my attention, though I was surprised that the protagonists tricked each other so often and then were so willing to continue their relationship. The whole thing is even more farfetched than other of the author's books


    Have you listened to any of Jeremy Davidson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I continually felt sorry for the husband. He seemed like a normal, likable guy who was victimized by a sociopath.


    Any additional comments?

    The ending, though probably inevitable, surprised me. I hope I never in my life encounter eight of them.

    Story
    "Not up to her earlier books"
    Would you try another book from Lisa Scottoline and/or Jeremy Davidson?

    I would be hesitant. I liked Scottoline's early books that stuck to what she knows, i.e., attorneys


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lisa Scottoline again?

    Possibly


    What didn’t you like about Jeremy Davidson’s performance?

    I found many of the voices annoying. The French accent was okay, but the men sounded all the same.


    What character would you cut from Don't Go?

    The story itself is too unbelievable and twisted. The author knows little to nothing about podiatrists and what they can and cannot do. Is this a story about returning vets, or drug addiction or loss of family or family jealousy?


    Any additional comments?

    If you like Scottoline, do not buy this book. It is not the real author!

    "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!

    Story
    "It Just Missed"

    The first 27 chapters was slow, laborious and repetitive. If it wasn't Scottoline I wouldn't have finished the book. Once it started, the fire it swept like an Arizona brushfire only to peter out at the end. She attempted to take on a number of important, timely issues but she never tied them them together thoroughly enough for me. I loved the effort but I expected a more cogent novel. The characters were great, there roles we identified and were carried out wonderfully but the storyline missed the mark.

    I would recommend the abridged version of Don't Go. Scottoline's last few book have taken her out of her comfort zone from the Rosario and Associates novels, I commend her for taking the plunge and I hope she continues to write books that make us try to understand important issues we never face or want to think much about.I must admit I'd love to see Benny and the girls again.

    Davidson was at his best conveying each character with distinction.

    "Nice Story"

    This wasn't really what I expected, but it was a nice story. Not great, not bad. I didn't like the accents that the narrator gave the sisters - none of the French people I know speak anything like that, but otherwise, the narrator was fine. The ending was a bit rushed and a bit too "happy ever after", but it didn't ruin the overall story for me.

    "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.

    Story
    "This book caught me by surprise."
    If you could sum up Don't Go in three words, what would they be?

    Fresh. Ingenious. Engaging.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Don't Go?

    The integrity of each and every character held. People didn't change suddenly to suit the storyline. The storyline weaved around the characters and who they were


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene in the grass at the end.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Mostly how touchingly everybody grew together, and towards the end grew together for the love of the little girl Emily.


    Any additional comments?

    The author, one of my personal favorites, did an amazing job of conveying both integrity in the characters & in the integrity of her storyline. I found myself deeply caring about most all of these characters. It was an excellent book.

    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.

    "It fooled me...in a good way"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Don't Go to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I would it kept me going until early in the morning...


    What did you like best about this story?

    I was sure I knew who the killer was boy was I wrong


    Which character – as performed by Jeremy Davidson – was your favorite?

    Mike


    Any additional comments?

    I was so involved with this book, as it progressed I was shouting at the kindle on what to do I was ready to write a note to the author I was so mad...thought it was predictable but it was not. I love mysteries and I can usually figure out who the killer is and what will happen next. Lisa Scottoline really surprised me with this one.. If you love mysteries this book is for you.
