I have read the majority of Lisa Scottoline's books and all of them are excellent. This one is MORE than excellent! I absolutely loved it. It was heartwarming, suspenseful and realistic from the beginning up until the end. I highly recommend this book and cannot wait for more by Lisa!

A riveting story about an Afghanistan doctor who's life begins to unravel when his wife dies back in the States and leaves him with a baby daughter to care for. Scottoline did an excellent job of making a man the main character for the first time and her characters were for the most part rich and developed.

Good story,held my attention and is a fast read. Good characters and subject matter, returning medical doctor from war, different subject matter for Lisa Scottoline. Good research on the medical side of the story.

I guess I can add Lisa Scottoline to the list of wildly popular authors whose appeal is totally lost on me. It wouldn't have mattered so much that this story was predictable and often unbelievable, if only I had been able to feel something for the characters. But disappointingly that never happened. The incredibly flat and wooden writing made the whole thing so uninteresting that I didn't even bother skimming through to the end.

This is not like the other books by Scottoline. Completely different characters, and just a little legal drama and courtroom scenes.
The main character is a doctor, serving in Afghanistan. His wife, meanwhile dies in an apparent household accident. He also has a baby daughter.
While serving a second tour of duty, he suffers a major injury that will permanently change his life forever and alter his ability to practice medicine.
Other reviewers have given summations regarding the storyline and plot. The book was very well written, but was very depressing. That being said, anything and everything about war is depressing.
The book will give you a renewed respect for our military, especially those who are stationed and serving in Afghanistan, and for their families. I would post the book, but it was a library book. Put this one on hold and be patient. It is worth the wait.
