What happens in Monte Carlo could get you murdered.

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 for survival.

Guilty Wives is the ultimate indulgence, the kind of nonstop joyride of excess, friendship, betrayal, and danger that only James Patterson can create.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Narrator January LaVoy keeps the plot moving and listeners engaged in this taut novel of suspense from bestselling authors Patterson and Ellis…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.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Patterson and Ellis make the pages fly.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Patterson takes us on a Monte Carlo vacation, as Abbie Elliot flees her duties as a diplomat’s wife in Zurich and heads for a wild weekend with three friends in gambling’s kingdom by the sea. There they stumble over two dead bodies and find themselves framed for murder, with a big courtroom showdown that puts their entire lives on trial. Patterson, who holds the record for number of New York Times best sellers, is joined by Edgar Award winner Ellis. Buy multiples.”

    Library Journal

  • “Among the very best of Patterson’s stand-alone works…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.”


  • A New York Times Bestseller in Fiction for 2012
