Summary
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.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly 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.)
