Lisa Scottoline has always been known for the intensity and accuracy of her legal thrillers. With her new novel, DON'T GO, she delivers all of this intensity, as well as an insightful psychological portrait of a young father in crisis.
Mike Scanlon, a podiatrist and member of the Army Reserve Medical Corps scheduled on a surgical team in Afghanistan, is eager to wrap up his tour of duty. He desperately misses his beautiful wife Chloe and knows that he's missing out on a lot of milestones for their seven-month-old daughter, Emily, who was only a month old when Mike left for Afghanistan. But then, out of the blue, Mike learns that Chloe is dead, the victim of a household accident.
