Lauren Stillwell is not your average damsel in distress. When the 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.
In a further twist of fate, Lauren must take on a job that threatens everything she stands for. Now, she's paralyzed by a deadly secret that could tear her life apart. With her job and marriage on the line, Lauren's desire for retribution becomes a lethal inferno as she fights to save her livelihood--and her life.
Patterson takes us on a twisting roller-coaster ride of thrills in his most gripping novel yet. This story of love, lust and dangerous secrets will have readers' hearts pounding to the very last page.

Holy twists and turns! Didn't see the plot twist coming, but the end was sort of rushed at the end. :-/ Read full review

Review: The Quickie

User Review  - Lorna - Goodreads

The Quickie is an apt title for this in more ways than one. Patterson obviously fills in his time in between Cross novels and The Women's murder club with "quick thrill" reads which are becoming increasingly predictable. Disappointing.” Read full review
