Publisher Comments:

When Lauren Stillwell discovers her husband leaving a hotel room with another woman, she decides to beat him at his own game. But while she's sneaking around, her husband is hatching a plan of his own. After a torrid quickie with a co-worker, Lauren hears a struggle outside her window and looks out just in time to see her husband loading her lover's limp body into the trunk of a car. When the body shows up in a pool of shallow water, she races to the scene of the crime. But Lauren Stillwell is no regular wronged woman. She's a NYC cop--and she's just been assigned to this case. Unable to tell anyone what she saw and unwilling to turn her husband in, Lauren is paralyzed by a secret that will tear her life apart. But as she attempts to point fingers away from her husband, she uncovers something shocking: her husband didn't have an affair--what he did was far worse than she could have ever imagined. A gripping story of secrets and infidelities that begins where Adrian Lyne's movie Unfaithful leaves off, THE QUICKIE will have readers' hearts pounding to the very last page.

Synopsis:

When Lauren Stillwell, an NYPD cop, discovers her husband leaving a hotel with another woman, she decides to beat him at his own game. But her revenge goes dangerously awry, and she finds her world spiraling into a hell that becomes more terrifying by the hour.

WOW!! This was FANTASTIC! When I first started reading I wasnt sure I wanted to continue, but one thing you can count on to keep you interested in one of James Patterson's novels is the short chapters. It was so easy to say, "I'll read abother chapter and see how I feel after." The amount of Twists and Turns in this book was CRAZY! James Patterson had me hooked and eager and shocked! So many emotions all in one hit. The way he wrote this book really did make me feel like the lead character was one of my close Girlfriends and I was completely bound to her. I would definitely like to see this in a movie, the amount of twists and turns and action just keeps you on the edge of your seat! Highly recommend.
