Sometimes disaster is simply a matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Take Addison Roberts, for example: it is a deadly coincidence that in a crowded parking lot one day, she catches the eye of a dangerous criminal on the run. In his desperation to evade the police, what he needs is a way out—and Addison and her car are his ticket to escape.
Lieutenant Chase Roberts, on leave from his military assignment, is anxious to be reunited with his wife. Yet as night falls and Addison fails to appear, Chase feels a rising sense of foreboding. Hours quickly become days as he desperately works with authorities to find the woman he loves. But after being named a person of interest, Chase is warned away from the investigation—a mandate he ignores. Chase will stop at nothing to find his wife, and what he ultimately discovers is terrifying: Addison has been carjacked by a man who has killed before and has no scruples against killing again ...

I met my good friend Ken Page years ago while in Alabama working with the Air Force. We have maintained contact as we have both changed jobs and now retired. I read his first book a few years ago and now he has released his first novel. Started it on Saturday and finished it yesterday. Fun read and easy to recommend it. Congrats to Ken and I hope he has more books in the works.
One thing I really enjoyed was after the situation was resolved in the story he added a couple more chapters to tell how the main characters were doing after the six day event. Nice touch!
I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked up this book. But, wow! I really loved it. There are so many things that were great about this one.
The characters. I loved the way you get to see into the minds and feelings of each of the characters. It's told through the point of view of each of the main ones and I loved the way it gave you such a great view of everything that was happening, oftentimes through multiple angles.
The book starts out with Eddie. He's a man who is down on his luck and pretty much at the end of his rope. The last thing he comes up with to do to make it so he can survive is to rob a bank. But the bank robbery goes wrong when he ends up killing the guard. The guard dying also makes it so Eddie is desperate and he no longer cares how many bad things he does...bad news for Addison.
Addison is the victim. She just happens to be in the place Eddie determined to leave his getaway car at the wrong time. He takes her and life gets hard for her very fast. I love the way she has the presence of mind to remember a survival course she had taken. I love the strength she shows and the way she knows she will be able to beat Eddie, even when it seems like everything's against her. She also is a woman of great faith, she prays several times to know what to do.
There's also Chase, he's Addison's husband. I love the way, even though things seem terrible, when he prays he knows everything will work out. I also liked that he was willing to be humble enough to let the police treat him as the bad guy in order to make things move faster to find his wife. He also is not willing to sit idly by to let the police find things in their own time. He knows he needs to help and he puts himself in harms way so many times to save her.
The plot of this one sucked me in so fast! I didn't want anything bad to happen to Addison and I couldn't put this one down until I read the whole book. So amazing!
I loved everything about this book, take the time to read it! You won't regret it!
"Down on his luck" the man waited until just moments before the bank closed, then rushed through the doors. He had acquired a gun he held inside his hooded jacket. All went smoothly until as he was leaving, the security guard was going to question him.
He was free but he needed to get rid of the vehicle. He drove to the nearby park and waited. Luck was on his side. A group of women with children were leaving the park. One woman was by herself. As the other women were hassling with getting their children in the car, He grabbed his chance as the single woman began to open her car door.
Addison was terrified. She wished she had paid better attention during survival training.
Th man was unstable.
Chase was eager to get home to his wife after three days of training away from home. They were still in the "honeymoon" part of their marriage. When he arrived it was very strange he wasn't there to greet him. Before long, he knew something was not right!
This is a powerful tale of a woman's bravery, along with other unexpected aid.
It was life and death until the last chapter. Unfortunately it was very close to real life!
This was very well-written, the characters were all very realistic and the background scenes vivid. The Book Cover and Title were well chosen.
I offer a Four and a Half Stars rating.
* This book was gifted me with no expectations for a positive review. This is my honest review.
This book was so good! I could not put it down. The story was so captivating from beginning to end I couldn't stop reading it. It truly was thrilling and he does a great job of making you feel like your there experiencing everything they are. I absolutely would recommend this book to everyone I know. I can't wait to read more from him!
Simply a fantastic read. Whether you are familiar with military tactics or not, this book is written so well anyone can instantly become familiar and comfortable with operational procedures as they are sucked into this suspenseful story. While the reader is torn between loathing and empathy for the bad guy, there is no way to stop from cheering on the heroine as she valiantly takes on the challenges presented to her, never losing her faith in Heavenly Father or her husband. You will be sitting on the edge of your seat until the last page, which won't be for long because you won't be able to put the book down until you finish!
Wow, this was a hard book to put down! This new author grabs your attention from page 1. The characters were easy to picture in my mind and I felt like I knew them. I was worried for them and cheered for them. I loved how strong and brave Addison is. By the time you are through reading Addison and Chase will be like family. I'm hoping we will be seeing more books from Kenneth Page.
I love suspense novels and this is one of the best I've ever read. It keeps you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. There are no slow parts at all. The story begins fast and crescendos from there to the incredibly exciting finish, followed by a wonderful look ahead for the major characters. I hate it when a story ends abruptly, this book lets you down just right while letting you know something of the future lives of the main characters. This is a must-read book, and one I strongly recommend.
Six days to Live is a heartpounding thriller from start to finish. The first sentence draws you in and the roller coaster of emotion and suspense never ends. The characters are well developed. And you cant help but feel everything Addison feels as you follow her from kidnap to rescue. Make sure you have a few hours free when you start reading - you won't be able to put this one down. Hoping to see many more from this great new author.
I couldn’t put the book down!! Learned a lot new things about the Air Force, military terminology, and understanding how search and recite operates. Simply loved the book and highly recommend it to everyone.
