Six Years

Editorial reviews

Six Years

It’s easy to quibble with the novel’s romantic elements. Mr. Coben didn’t set out to write a romance; he set out to write a damn good thriller. But it is a romance.

If this happens to be your intro to Coben, you're in for a big treat! If you're a long time fan, you'll no doubt see the same similarities here (not pointing out specifics for fear of spoilers) with Tell No One.

Amid the furious plot twists and those dense, ever-tightening connections, artful emotional expression may not be what drives this novel.

[T]he major draws to SIX YEARS are figuring out the how and the why behind the twists, turns and deceptions to which Jake has been subjected, and finding out how everything turns out at the end.

Kirkus Reviews : Six Years (March 19, 2013)

Like Jeffery Deaver, veteran Coben (Stay Close, 2012, etc.) is a magician who’s a lot more fun to watch when you don’t know how he’s fooling you.

Coben has achieved greater suspense in other thrillers, but this ranks among his strangest and most ingenious plots.
