Harlan Coben, Gamma '84(Amherst) is releasing his next book, "Six Years", next month. With 50 million books in print worldwide, Harlan Coben’s last five consecutive novels, "Stay Close", "Live Wire", "Caught", "Long Lost" and "Hold Tight" all debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list and lists around the world. His books are published in 41 languages around the globe and have been number one bestsellers in over a dozen countries.
About "Six Years"... 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.
