9780446501644: The Quickie

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.

About the Author:

James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977 James Patterson's books have sold more than 300 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.

From AudioFile:

The best-laid plans of Homicide Detective Lauren Stillwell go awry when she plans a surprise lunch date with her husband and discovers heÕs about to have a nooner with someone else. Not only does Lauren get mad, she gets even by having an indiscretion of her own. Only LaurenÕs quickie is anything but brief. It takes on a life of its own that could destroy both her personal and professional lives. Mary Stuart Masterson performs this psychological suspense with a voice that has just the right understated ÒeverywomanÕsÓ quality. Masterson takes her audience along for the various cliff-hangers and plot twists and helps listeners empathize with the main character. Music cues throughout the production heighten the tension.
