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 movieUnfaithful leaves off, THE QUICKIE will have readers' hearts pounding to the very last page.

This book was a disappointment for me. Perfect example of what an established author will do for a few more dollars in his pocket. Sad excuse for a book

Two James Patterson books in a row! I couldn't believe how good this one was too! A very intriguing story with lots of twists and turns. I really enjoyed this one and highly recommend it for a quick read.

From the first page to the last, this book is DELICIOUS. That's the only way to describe it. The feeling you get when you realized you've got a great book, and the bittersweet feeling when you've finish it.

I don't see why all the negative comments on this book, it was just as good as any other James Patterson book in my opinion!

I found this book to be offensive and disliked it so much I haven't read another of his books since.

Read it in one night! Def a page turner. I did however have a problem with the ways certain events were explained and by that I mean they just weren't. Some of the events that unfolded just "fixed themselves" and it was a lil disappointing in that respect.
