For fast, edgy, tight as a duck’s wing under water Crime Fiction that will have you flipping the pages over in a blur, Harlan Coben’s Six Years may be the must read novel of the year.
Imagine a scenario in which you find the man the love of your life left you for and married has died. Then discover that the same man is seemingly no longer married to the love of your life. What would you do and despite the promises you made six years ago not to interfere, or make contact or stalk her on Social Networking sites.

This is the dilemma facing Jake Sanders and what transpires is the unearthing of lies, the boundaries of trust being breached and a truly epic life-or-death situation developing with aplomb.

What Coben does beast is breathe life into ordinary, mundane events and brings colour, originality and energy to each one individually. Not for him the grisly serial killer. Harlan Coben devotes himself to wringing from the everyday a sense of intrigue that is beguiling.

Added to this are the beautifully drawn characters, the sense of time and place which glues his plots so expertly together and the razor sharp dialogue which is so imbued with charm and wit which all adds to up to one hell of a novel and one hell of an addition to each Crime Fic Fan’s Must Read list.
