The Quickie - James Patterson
Advantages: great story
James Patterson mainly writes thriller novels and this is the first I have read from him. He was not
always a writer and started off working at Toys R US it was only after her retired that he began his career as a writer and he has done quiet well in fact some of his books have become movies here are some.
Along came a spider
1st to die
and finally womans murder club has been turned into a tv series
Other books from him that have not been turned into movies are:
The Thomas Berryman Number
Season of the Machete
Hide & Seek
There are quite a few others but I thought I Just mention a few.
one of the main character's is quiet loyal in the beginning and has know her husband since high school and would do anything for her husband. Unfortunately both she and her husband quickly start to seperate withouut realising. She also is a police officer and has been asked by her boss to investigate her lovers murder. She is quiet good at her job and always make sure she gets the criminals. She will have to decide how she is going to go about this investigation.
Has recently joined the Police force and is known by very few. No-one knows about the affair between him and Lauren. He is described as a almost playboy in looks but is a kind gentle person. He orginally objects to the affair but he finally falls in love with Lauren.
Is the husband of Lauren and is Scott's killer. He also has cheated on his wife with an unkown blonde woman where the story actually begins. His character kind of bugs me what sort of person cheats on his wife then kills his wife lover. Two wrongs don't make a right. Personally I don't know if I could have done what his character has done but then it would not have been a great story.
The book starts off when a wife wants to surprise her husband Paul. She goes to his work place and takes him out to lunch to a local steak house. It is meant to be a surprise but she is instead the one who receives the surprise when she discovers that her husband is cheating on her.
Both she and her husband then each go to the airport and go in an airplane to there work destinations but she decides to cancel her flight last minute she then tries to cheat on her husband with a work colleague but he make her realize that would be a big mistake so she does not go ahead with it. Before this happens the plot thickens when she gets a call from her doctor that she may be pregnant but they are still awaiting the results.
Just when I thought the story could not get anymore exciting Lauren the wife of the cheating husband named Paul Her lover gets killed when Paul her husband kills her lover Scott.
Storyline although have enjoyed the book I kind of feel has been done before in some movie I have watched before so from that point of view book is not exactly groundbreaking.
Summary: really worth the read
