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.
This was another book that was recommended to me to help me finish my Alphabet Soup Challenge and I’m glad I decided to pick it up.
I love when books have shorter chapters. It makes me feel like I am getting through the book faster. This book hooked me from the very beginning. I didn’t want to put it down because I wanted to know what was going on and why the characters were doing what they did.
It’s full of twists and turns that I didn’t see coming. I have only read a few of James Patterson’s books and he hasn’t disappointed me yet. I definitely want to read more of his work.
If you are in the mood for a fast paced book with some action and several twists you want see coming this is the book for you.
Sorry all of the reviews I have been posting this month are pretty short. I read most of these a while back so I’m struggling to remember my initial thoughts on them. Have you read any of James Patterson’s books? Which ones have you read? Which one do you think I should read next?
