My most recent read was THE QUICKIE by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge(Little, Brown & Co., c2007, ISBN 0-316-11736-4).
When Lauren Stillwell sees her husband cheating on her she does the only thing to do: she cheats back. However, while glowing in that post-coital way, she witnesses her husband fighting with the man she's just slept with and sees them drive off together.
One glitch: Lauren's lover turns up dead and Lauren must make some tough choices, both personally and professionally. Some could cost her her job, others may cost her her life.
The first sentence:
I knew this was a terrific idea, if I didn't say so myself, surprising Paul for lunch at his office down on Pearl Street.
I hadn't read any reviews of this book so when I got to certain point I said, "WHOA!" and then my heart started beating again and I finished the book in a matter of hours.
Typical Patterson here, but it was a great book to relax me after reading my last book, SHADOW MAN.
