                       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.

Jake Fisher never understood why his one true love Natalie had suddenly
dumped him and married another man, but he promises to go along with
Natalie's request to leave them both alone. Six years later, he comes across an
obituary notice for Todd, Natalie's husband, and decides that lets him out of
the promise. But sneaking along to the funeral, Jake is stunned to discover
that, whoever this grieving widow is, she isn't Natalie. And so starts the hunt...

In college professor Jake, Harlan Coben has created a very likeable old-
fashioned hero, a decent man caught up in extraordinary events and finding
that all the things and people he thought he knew might not be what they
seemed after all. With twists and turns right up to the end, interesting
characters, a complex plot, exciting action sequences and, not least, loads of
great humour, Coben is at the top of his game in this standalone thriller. The
book is told in the first person from Jake's perspective and in the best tradition
of mystery writing Coben plays fair with the reader - we get all the clues at the
same time Jake does, but this reader at least only reached the finish line in a
neck-and-neck gallop with Jake.

Yes, OK, there are some things I could criticise if I was being picky - sometimes
34-year-old Jake came over as a much older man (Coben showing through
perhaps?), a bit of a continuity issue around the magically
disappearing/reappearing iPhone, and the thriller writer's best friend,
coincidence, did play a fairly big role. But I refuse to be picky - none of that
spoiled the sheer enjoyment of this exciting, fast-paced and great fun page-
turner. Highly recommended.
