This is a little below Patterson's usual standard I think, though it is getting hard to see his hand on any of his 'collaborations.' The most interesting part of the book to me were descriptions of the high life, casinos, dancing and drinking in Monaco and France. Also the tales of the French legal system (while possibly not accurate) were interesting. Four spoiled wives out for a holiday run into a murder plot and end up abused in jail awaiting an unfair trial. There are a lot of twists and turns. The murderer(s) get caught, some of the innocent get vindicated and our heroine sees her children again. I found it hard to care about any of the made-up characters and it was overlong, but all in all not a bad read.
An interesting and fast read. I enjoyed the book, but it was not my favorite Patterson book by far.
This book was one of the best books I have read by Patterson. I really enjoyed it. It was definitely a page turner. Kept my interest way into the late night. I found myself gripping the book and trying hard to figure the who what and why of it all. Very, very good!!
