Guilty Wives by James Patterson and David Ellis
(Little, Brown and Co., 2012, 424 pages)
Abbie Elliot and her three best friends go to Monte Carlo for the trip of a lifetime, not knowing that their lives will change forever. Four married women venture off without their husbands to bask in the sun and excitement in the land of the rich and famous. Little do they know that their husbands are lurking in the background. They go off with some interesting guys for a private party on a yacht only to find the next morning that one of the guys has been murdered. The French police swoop down on them and transport the women into France where they stand trial and are imprisoned. All but Abbie Elliott are willing to take pleas to cut their jail time, but in the end Abbie’s tenacity and wiliness to prove her innocence wins out.
