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….

    "Good - I didn't figure it out until the end!!"

    I didn't figure it out until the end! Good plot, Christina Traister did a very good job on narration.Think I will get another Lisa Jackson book.

    "Decent listen"

    Have been trying out new authors and Lisa Jackson is one of them. I liked the book. Found the premise likable. It reminded me of a '70's creep movie. Crazy house, creepy family.. 'Don't Look Now' , I'll pay you if you stay here overnight kinda weird. Even self admitted in the story itself. There were a lot of twists as others said but sometimes too many, sometimes predictable but it didn't really keep me on the edge. Was a little overacted by the narrator but I did like her. Weird house, weird killer, not sure how necessary murders or some of the ppl. I agree with the slow start, was definately that. Not good. Not bad. Just decent. Loosely borderline "kitschy".

    "I LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS!"

    This book and narration worked for me in every aspect, and I highly recommend it - especially to those, who like me, enjoy a solid, beautifully-written, suspenseful yarn! I recommended it to a friend, who also gave it high marks. Thank you, Audible.com, for another winner, and as usual, from a very satisfied fan.

    "You Don't Want to ....."

    I wanted a thriller, and this author predominately writes romantic thrillers, so that may explain the problem, but I found her writing style ridiculous. The main character is very troubled and walks around following hunches with virtually no character development. To fill space, the author just puts in pointless filler. No one walks up stairs, they tread up subtly diminishing staircases. They don't dig a hole, they rythmically thrust a shovel into the soft earth, then move the soft earth in a rythm. Same words, adding nothing.

    I was not expecting fine literature, but this book was so poorly written and edited that I felt cheated.

    "Predictable and patchy in quality"

    I found this book patchy and at times very repetitive. The main character would slip in and out of her character. One minute being strong and the next excruciating weak and pliable. What ever anyone says, (without giving the plot away) I am sure a woman would know if she had given birth or not!! the author seemed to run out of ideas as to how to end it and it became a bit of a circus. Not very satisfying.

    "Good read!"

    Decent book. Would have been excellent if some of the repeation was removed, but then it would have been abridged. Good mysteries that kept me guessing. If yelling from a narrator bothers you, be warned there is yelling that catches you unaware. I didnt find it too bad, it just became annoying.

    "Crazy Twisty"
    Would you listen to You Don't Want to Know again? Why?

    Yes! The suspense, the intensity, the characters...


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ava and Dern of course


    What does Christina Traister bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The way she adds inflection to the characters. She adds so much emotion.


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

    I laughed. I cried.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Lisa Jackson's books and the narrators are always so talented. I recommend this book!
