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.
And look for MISSING YOU, the new novel coming from Harlan Coben in hardcover and ebook in March.

Harlan Coben is the internationally bestselling author of more than twenty previous novels, including the #1 New York Times bestsellers Stay Close, Live Wire, Caught, Long Lost, and Hold Tight, as well as the Myron Bolitar series and, more recently, a series aimed at young adults featuring Myron’s nephew, Mickey Bolitar. The winner of the Edgar, Shamus, and Anthony awards, Coben lives in New Jersey.
*Starred Review* Coben, the first mystery writer to win all three of the big crime-fiction awards—the Shamus, the Edgar, and the Anthony—is an absolute master of the time element in his thrillers. Usually, he sets a clock running, or a bomb ticking, in the first few pages. The hero works against the clock and against all probability in extricating himself and his loved ones from peril. This latest throws a new wrinkle into the time element: there is no urgency at all. The hero is actually warned by everyone he respects that action can only do harm, and the main action has happened six years before. And yet Coben manages to make this one every bit as suspenseful as his ticktock thrillers. It’s a story about lost love. Political-science professor Jake Fisher has endured seeing his love, Natalie, marry another man just weeks after Jake and Natalie’s breakup. At the wedding, which Fisher attended in a fit of masochism and disbelief, Natalie warned him never to contact her. Fisher keeps the promise until he sees an obituary for Natalie’s husband, an alum of the same New England college where Fisher teaches. What happens after Fisher attends the funeral, finding another widow in place of Natalie, is mind-boggling. Fisher’s attempts to find Natalie again and Coben’s artful depiction of his protagonist—Is he determined or unhinged?—make for riveting reading. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Coben has 50 million books in print worldwide, and his last five novels have all debuted at number one on the New York Times best-seller list. Enough said. --Connie Fletcher
