After a lavish night of guilty pleasures in Monte Carlo, four best friends face an awful morning of arrests-and a fight for survival.
Only minutes after Abbie Elliot and her three best friends step off of a private helicopter, they enter the most luxurious, sumptuous, sensually pampering hotel they have ever been to. Their lavish presidential suite overlooks Monte Carlo, and they surrender: to the sun and pool, to the sashimi and sake, to the Bruno Paillard champagne. As the weekend moves into pulsating discos, high-stakes casinos, and beyond, Abbie is transported to the greatest pleasure and release she has ever known.
In the morning's harsh light, Abbie awakens on a yacht, surrounded by police. Something awful has happened: something impossible, unthinkable. Abbie, Winnie, Serena, and Bryah are arrested and accused of the foulest crime imaginable. And now the vacation of a lifetime becomes the fight of a lifetime-a fight for survival. Guilty Wives is the ultimate indulgence, the kind of nonstop joy-ride of excess, friendship, betrayal, and danger that only James Patterson can create.

Good and Bad
This book has a complex and sophisticated plot. But my one and only complaint is that the in prison days for the four women was FAR too graphic and FAR too long. This was unnecessary to the success of the book. While reading the in prison part, I almost just gave up on the book. The story was no fun too read here, and even depressing. And it seemed to never end. The book editor really should have ordered a fix. I stuck with it, and it got good and enjoyable later. But I fear many readers would just put it down. Too bad no one wised up this author. Too bad Patterson did not speak up. Could have been excellent. Instead only fair.
I loved this book! It was a great story of friendships and the strength of women.
Awesome from beginning to end. It was impossible to put down.
