In my opinion, even though the female characters are very different with interesting personalities, Bass didn’t write well enough to display their differences so they were underdeveloped.
Decked out in rented designer costumes and borrowed jewels, they enter the stomping grounds of the rich and famous and are immediately accosted by a quartet of handsome, suave men bearing white caviar and expensive champagne.

Four women who are “headhunting” for rich husbands in Monte Carlo, ordinary women if you can call women in their mid to late forties who commit fraud to obtain wealthy husbands ordinary.
Despite the novel’s flaws, it will translate nicely into film and sell exceptionally well once the movie is released.
