[Book Review] THE QUICKIE by James Patterson


Beth reviews THE QUICKIE by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge (Little, Brown, 2007)

Author James Patterson has mastered the art of story-telling--and with co-authors we get to read even more of his work each year! James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge come together again (authors of Step on a Crack) to bring us a murder mystery—with an ending you will never see coming!

NYPD cop Lauren Stillwell cannot believe it when she sees her husband with another woman--a thin, blonde woman. She thought their marriage was perfect...but now she wants revenge--his way.

Their night together was just supposed to be a quickie, a way to level the field, but when Lauren witnesses her lover’s death, her world goes into a tailspin. The secret she now holds threatens to destroy her world to its very core. What will survive--her marriage, her job, her life? If others find out her secret, will they still respect her?

This book was amazing! The two books that Patterson and Ledwidge co-wrote are thrillers to the core. I was left with my eyes wide open thinking, "Did I miss something? How did I not see this coming?" Patterson fans will not want to miss this thriller!
