Highlands Ranch: Bestselling and Edgar Award-winning author Lisa Scottoline will read from and sign her new book Don’t Go (St. Martin’s Press). Gripping, thrilling, and profoundly emotional, Scottoline’s new novel is 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 at home in the suburbs, in an apparent household accident. Devastated, he returns home to bury her, only to discover his medical practice is in jeopardy, he's a complete stranger to his precious baby girl, and he must grapple with a shocking secret that sends him into a downward spiral.
