Six Years by Harlan Coben
Six years ago Jake attended the wedding of Natalie and Todd. A normal occurrence, attending a wedding; but Natalie was the love of Jake’s life and not a day goes by that he doesn’t think of her. Yet he has kept his distance and never tried to find her or spy on her online. After the wedding she made him promise that he would leave her and her new husband alone. And he did. But today he saw the obituary of Todd in the alumni newsletter and Jake breaks his promise. Some promises should never be broken.
Coben does a great job with the twists and turns in this one. Jake is utterly confused and freaked out and we’re right with him. Things are revealed little by little, but the more you learn the less sense it all makes. Of course it all is clear in the end, but you will be in a fog (in a good way!) for most of the book.
A great choice on audio; Scott Brick is a great reader and he does confused and flabbergasted extremely well.
