really liked it

4 women go to Monte Carlo for the weekend. They are having a great time relaxing, drinking, eating, drinking, drinking, picking up men, drinking.... The day after, they wake up under arrest having no idea what they had supposedly done. It takes some time to find out what they are being charged with. You find out when they do instead of knowing the whole time and waiting for the characters to catch up.

Their trial is interesting and the prison is scary and violent. I liked the differences in protocol between the French and American justice systems. A bit too much time spent talking about and describing the violence in prison for my taste. Doesn't seem necessary to go into so many details and so many different situations. Of course to move the plot along you do need to realize the women's fear but still felt it was too much.

It was interesting to find out about their supposed crime and who all were really involved, who was really guilty. There are some characters you really hate and some you root for. None of the wives are truly "innocent" in that they were each having a fling. They may not be "innocent" of the crime they are arrested for, but they are guilty of infidelity and bad choices.

Interesting read.
