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. For four days they''re free to live
someone else''s life. 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.
What happened last night?
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--for survival. GUILTY
WIVES is the ultimate indulgence, the kind of nonstop joy-ride of
excess, friendship, betrayal, and danger that only James Patterson

About the Book
Abbie Elliot gave up her life to follow her diplomat husband to
Zurich. Now, she and her three best friends are in desperate need
of a weekend getaway and decide it's the perfect time for a fling
in Monte Carlo.
They surrender themselves to every temptation: fine dining,

screeching halt when two bodies are found, and they become the
police's prime suspects.
In a dramatic trial, the women's lives are laid bare. It becomes
clear that they have been framed, but one question remains: Who is
trying to lock them away forever? With delicious twists and
death-defying speed, GUILTY WIVES is a nonstop joy-ride of excess,
friendship, and betrayal as only James Patterson can create.
