James Patterson's steamiest summer thriller yet starts with a one-night stand gone terribly wrong. . . . When she sees her husband with another woman, Lauren Stillwell's heart nearly stops beating. Their marriage is perfect, she has a great job, she loves her life. But his betrayal turns her into someone she never imagined she could be – a woman lusting for revenge. It was supposed to be a quickie, a way to even the score. But Lauren's night of passion takes a shocking turn when she witnesses an unexpected, unbelievable, deadly crime. Her horrifying secret threatens to tear her life apart, pitting her need to uncover the truth against her fear that the truth may be too horrible to bear. And whichever choice she makes could cost her dearly – her job, her marriage, even her life. From the man USA Today has called the "master of the genre" comes his steamiest, scariest novel since the #1 bestseller Honeymoon. THE QUICKIE is a twisting story of desires, secrets, and consequences that will have your heart pounding until the very last moment.

Professional reviews

"The best-laid plans of Homicide Detective Lauren Stillwell go awry when she plans a surprise lunch date with her husband and discovers he's 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 Lauren's 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 "everywoman's" 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.
