Wow! What a thriller! I had no idea what to expect but this book got off to a chilling start and the suspense continued to build from there in Don’t Go, Lisa Scottoline’s latest. I listened to the audio version so I couldn’t go any faster than the reader but this quick paced story kept me enthralled the entire way through.




Audio books usually take me a little while to get into because I have to get used to the different voices by the same reader. This one pulled me in a lot quicker than usual where I was able to get completely lost in the story and wasn’t distracted by the reader.




Mike Scanlon has one misfortune after another beginning with his wife’s death. Things really fall apart when he comes home to bury his wife to a daughter who doesn’t know him and his practice falling apart. Things go from bad to worse when he discovers what his wife had been up to when he was gone. He questions everything he knows and loves.




He returns to Afghanistan and tries to bury himself in his work. Catastrophe seems to follow him wherever he goes and when it strikes again in Afghanistan, he returns home for good. Trying to get his life back proves to be a bigger challenge then he could have dreamed. Things continue to go wrong in every possible way. Darkness is his constant companion as the life he once knew slips out of his grasp.




Scottoline makes you feel empathy for Mike on the deepest level possible, despair for his predicaments and hope that he will be able to pull it together and get his life back. Life is hard to Mike and he has to fight for what he believes to be true and repair what has been broken in his life.




Don’t Go is a suspenseful dramatic mystery that will keep you in the dark until the very end. It is a true testament to the human spirit and what one can accomplish if they set their mind to it and never give up.

I was truly disappointed -- I'd not read a Lisa Scottaline in a while and was looking forward to getting back to her work since I've missed a few -- thought I'd start with this which I found unreadable, with an almost diadatic droaning-on tone. I thought it all very unlike what I'd read of Scottaline so am very disappointed. Perhaps it gets better later, but I put it away for now, not willing to finish. Maybe I'll try again later, but there's too many books out there and too little time!

    This is the first Lisa Scottoline book I've read. I sure hope her other stuff is much better than this. The dialogue is unrealistic, the plot not believable, and I was never able to develop any feeling for the main character. Time NOT well spent.

    Plot spoilers

    Something really needs to be done to these rude plot spoilers who insist on revealing details of the story line. That is rude and inconsiderate. Please stop. Other readers would like to tead the book for themselves and not have you people give us the readers digest condensed version. Please bn, stop these plot spoilers....please?

    Do not recommend.

    I did not like this book. It was disjointed, the dialogue was slow, sluggish n did not flow. quite frankly, it was extremely boring n monotonous. i am a fan of Lisa's books but I have to say that this was a big disappointment for me and very poorly written.i can't believe that Lisa wrote this book.

    By the time I'd finished this book, I felt as if I had been beaten with a stick, and I wanted to beat every last character in it with a stick, too. Nobody behaves in a logical manner. Nobody is developed fully. The story line is trite, predictable, and boring. The more I read, the more I wanted to quit reading. But I had to finish as it was my book club's selection. Yuk

    Great author, lousy story

    Read the author's "Save Me" or "Look Again" instead of this one. Both excellent.

    A Very Enjoyable Read!

    I enjoyed this book very much. It was an easy read and also kept your interest because you knew how you wanted the book to end, but when certain situations arose you weren't quite sure how it could happen. Another Lisa Scottoline Success!
