Click Here to Download the Book In Six Years, a masterpiece of modern suspense, Harlan Coben explores the depth and passion of lost love…and the secrets and lies at its heart. Six years have passed since Jake Fisher watched Natalie, the love of his life, marry another man. Six years of hiding a broken heart by throwing himself into his career as a college professor. Six years of keeping his promise to leave Natalie alone, and six years of tortured dreams of her life with her new husband, Todd. But six years haven’t come close to extinguishing his feelings, and when Jake comes across Todd’s obituary, he can’t keep himself away from the funeral. There he gets the glimpse of Todd’s wife he’s hoping for…but she is not Natalie. Whoever the mourning widow is, she’s been married to Todd for almost two decades, and with that fact everything Jake thought he knew about the best time of his life—a time he has never gotten over—is turned completely inside out. As Jake searches for the truth, his picture-perfect memories of Natalie begin to unravel. Mutual friends of the couple either can’t be found, or don’t remember Jake. No one has seen Natalie in years. Jake’s search for the woman who broke his heart, who lied to him, soon puts his very life at risk as it dawns on him that the man he has become may be based on a carefully constructed fiction. Harlan Coben once again delivers a shocking page-turner that deftly explores the power of past love, and the secrets and lies that such love can hide.
Reviews I was introduced to Harlan Coben's terrific writing style through his Myron Bolitar series. I fell in love with the humor Coben injects into his writing. In my opinion it takes real intelligence to write witty repartee. Coben does it expertly in the Bolitar series and continues that same expertise in his new book Six Years. The book is a mystery-thriller with a love story backbone. Six Years is the kind of book I treasure, where the main character shows true feeling but also there's a kick ass mystery to be had as well. I love good character development, you get to know the why's and the how's of the character all while a rollicking, fast paced mystery happens. In Six Years the book opens with a heartbreaking romantic interlude. The main character, Jake Fisher falls madly in love with Natalie. They spend three glorious months in a remote retreat but then Natalie abruptly ends the relationship and marries another man several days later. She tells Jake to leave her and her new husband alone, never contact them again. Jake, now a broken hearted man, agrees to leave her alone, forever. Six years later everything changes and Jake decides to break his long held promise and seek out the only woman he ever loved. What Jake doesn't know is by looking Natalie up he's opening a can of worms that he will not be able to close again. A fast paced and suspenseful story unfolds with twists and turns that keep you wanting to know more. This is one of those books that you just can't put down because each page offers a new and interesting twist that furthers the story along. Six Years was an excellent read, a five star mystery-thriller with a romantic lean that keeps you guessing, cheering for the good guy, hoping for the fairytale outcome and reading well into the night. I highly recommend this book or any other Harlen Coben book for that matter!
Jake Fisher is watching the love of his life, Natalie, marry another man, Todd. Jake's heart is broken but he had to see this wedding take place. Before the bride and groom leave for their happy life together, Natalie makes Jake promise she will leave them alone and never try to see or speak to them again. He agrees. Six years later he sees an obituary for Todd who has left behind a wife and two children. Jake believes the promise is now null and void with the death and decides to attend the funeral. The terror begins with this journey. How shocking to find that Todd's wife at the funeral isn't Natalie. The nightmare continues as Jake decides to track her down. Everywhere he goes, including their old hunting grounds in Vermont, all he hears is denial. No there wasn't an art retreat center, no the place where he ate the scones Natalie loved doesn't remember him or her; the people he remembers don't remember him; the police try to scare him away from the area; and on and on it goes. Denial and threats galore! Then Jake decides to track through the college records where he teaches and was once a student. Little by little a web of connected teachers, students, family members, horrific crimes, deaths, and more intensify the plot which leads to a criminal web and a "Fresh Start" relocation program. Only the last item is one in which no one knows where those with new lives have disappeared to. But they aren't all gone and the violence begins and continues over and over until a final culminating scene where the story is finally pieced together. In the end, disappearance, death and living are key elements for the safety and security that holds no guarantees. Harlan Coben holds the reader in a non-stop, perilous journey through mystery with a constantly haunting quality that never lets up! Six Years is superb crime fiction sure to satisfy fans both old and new - a bestseller for sure!
