This book will still be a bestseller because of Patterson’s reputation but this really could of have been great with just a few changes.
-Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book


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.

The greatest strength of GUILTY WIVES is its cinematic narrative; the story unfolds like an edge-of-your-seat movie that leaves you emotionally drained at the end.

James Patterson hardly ever disappoints me and Guilty Wives is a nail biter and page turner from the Prologue. The ending was most plausible and hints related to the conclusion were dropped throughout the book. Buy it, read it, you'll love it.

It is an often intense, always interesting escape that is hard to put down. It is definitely a page turner. Patterson and Ellis have done very, very well.

Guilty Wives is a suspenseful thriller that grabbed my interests from the moment I opened and kept its thrilling conclusion. I have read many of Patterson’s collaborations over the years and I think this is possibly one of his best books to date.
