Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No husbands allowed

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 can create.

Review:

"Narrator January LaVoy keeps the plot moving and listeners engaged in this taut novel of suspense from bestselling authors Patterson and Ellis. Abbie Elliot and three friends, Winnie, Serena, and Bryah, arrive in France for a fabulous and slightly decadent vacation. Everything seems to be going as planned — with wonderful food, spectacular lodging, and plenty of drinking. But things take a dark and terrible turn when, after a particularly exuberant night of partying, the women awake to find themselves under arrest for murder. Tried and convicted, Abbie and her friends are thrown into prison, and the ideal vacation getaway turns into a deadly fight for survival. LaVoy's narration perfectly matches the authors' somewhat farfetched but always entertaining prose. She lends the characters unique voices and manages to keep them grounded in reality — something a lesser narrator might not have been able to pull off. And most important, LaVoy never forgets this is a thriller, infusing each chapter with just enough tension to keep listeners glued to their seats. A Little, Brown hardcover. (Mar.)"

Synopsis:

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, high-stakes gambling, and gorgeous men. But the fun comes to a 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.
