Abby and three of her friends, Serena, Winnie and
Brea, were going to Monte Carlo for a four-day vacation from their
husbands and children. They each had eighty thousand Euros to spend
as they chose, courtesy of Serena, whose husband, Simon, was quite
wealthy. She was also financing the whole trip, including the stay
in a luxury hotel. Though none of the women were poor, Serena was
the only one with a lot of money.
Their first two days were spent shopping, gambling
and just relaxing. They also spent a lot of time drinking champagne,
whisky and wine. They had a blast for two days. Unfortunately, Brea's
husband, Colton, decided they were having too much fun. He was a
controlling man and abusive mentally and emotionally, though there
was no visible evidence the abuse went further. He called the other
husbands, Simon, Christian, and Jeffrey, to come to Monte Carlo
and see for themselves.
That evening, the husbands' revenge began. The women
had met four men. They were quite tipsy by that time and inhibitions
were gone. They spent the night with the men. The next morning,
their nightmare began. Two of the four men were dead, shot with
a handgun. The police found it in Abby's purse. The men were the
French President and his bodyguard. The women were charged with
is vintage James Patterson. The characters are typical with the
kinds of mistakes they made. They are atypical in the grand scale
they used to make them. Colton's jealousy is typical with his personality.
The revenge, however, was hardly normal, but fits with the husbands'
backgrounds. So, listen to Guilty Wives and pray you never
live a nightmare like this one.
