New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline 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 in their kitchen, a victim of an apparent household accident.  Devastated, Mike 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.

As layer upon layer of lies are revealed, Mike soon  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.  Gripping, thrilling, and profoundly emotional, Don’t Go is Lisa Scottoline at her finest.

Chloe woke up on the floor, her thoughts foggy. She must have fallen and knocked herself out when she hit the hardwood. She started to get up, but felt dizzy and eased back down. The kitchen was dark except for pinpoints of light on the coffeemaker, TV, and cable box, like a suburban constellation.
She tried to understand how long she’d been lying here. The last thing she remembered, she was rinsing the dishes after lunch, eyeing the sun through the window, like a big, fresh shiny yolk in the sky. Yellow was her favorite color, and she always tried to

Praise for Don't Go

“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
