Six years have passed since Jake Sanders 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 more than a decade, 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, and 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 carefully constructed fiction.

Very entertaining and one of the most original plots I have come across in a very long time. I had a difficult time buying into the reasoning of the main character but once I put that aside, it was a very good read

Good solid Coben; that involves dealing with the past problematically, as SOP. This one is a creative take on the remorse, or lack thereof. >>>>>> Very comfortable feel. A far fetched hook that drags on the action throughout, but Coben sort of pulls it off. King of the unrequited. In lesser hands this would have been a disaster.

My first Harlan Coben book and I liked it very much. Read it in two days, which I haven't done in a long time. It has been hard for books to hold my attention, but this one I didn't want to put down. I will definitely read more of his books.

Coben does not always "capture" me but this book is a page turner, hard to put down, easy to relate to, and ultimately inspiring.

I enjoyed this book a lot. Was well written and kept me interested until the last page. I have enjoyed each Coben book I have read. Will continue to read this author.

I haven't read a Harlen Coben book for quite some time, Six Years reminded me how much I like his books. I don't usually read a book in a day but I had to find out what happened. Lots of suspense and plot twists and the ending was good.

Light ... Camera ... Action!
Ha-ha-ha. Incredible Adventures of Professor Fisher.
In this book there is nothing of the genre "mystery". But I like a sense of humor of the author.

Great story which I would have enjoyed more if I had not just finished reading "Tell No One", which has a very similar plot and more suspense.
