Two years ago the nightmare began. Two year old Noah Garrison vanished from his family’s Washington State home. His grief stricken mom Ava mentally collapsed and is placed on meds while spending much time since Noah’s disappearance from their island home in Seattle institutions as she is under suicide watches.

The meds fail to eliminate her nightmares and Ava in a rare lucid moment believes her dugs trigger them. Recently Ava has stopped taking the numbing meds and beginning to regain her memory, which brings its own terrorism as she wonders if Noah fell off the dock and drowned. Ava finds it outrageous yet fascinating that sympathy is towards her husband Wyatt who was never there for their son or her. She also thinks he is cheating again. To add to her tsuris, the police suspect a deranged Ava is a brutal serial killer as the victims are tied to her. Stable hand Austin Dern rescues Ava when she falls off that same dock where she fears Noah fell from. Austin helps Ava try to prove her innocence in the homicides and with what happened to Noah.

You Don’t Want To Know is a gripping thriller that hooks the audience from the onset and never let’s go until the final climax. Filled with twists and spins, and a powerful cast staring with Ava, readers will need to know what happened to Noah in Lisa Jackson’s stunning psychological mystery.
