Genre: Mystery Thriller/Suspense

I read this novel quite some time ago, (twice, possibly more), but it still brings me nostalgia when I see it on my bookshelf. A book worthy of multiple reads, Six Seconds is a mystery thriller that reads like a roller coaster. Non-stop action, plot twists, and surprises around every corner, Six Seconds grabs you and doesn’t let go.
I would highly recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys a good mystery with suspense that keeps you at the edge of your seat! So add it to your TBR list, today! As a matter of fact, I passed it along to my husband to read and I can’t wait to hear his thoughts!
