Seven novels about wealthy people behaving badly

Lizzy Barber studied English at Corpus Christ College, Cambridge University. After 'previous lives' acting and working in film development, she has spent the last ten years as Head of Brand and Marketing for The Hush Collection, a boutique group of restaurants founded by her brother, Jamie.

Her new novel is Out Of Her Depth.

At CrimeReads Barber tagged seven novels about the lifestyles of the rich and shameless, including:
The Wife Between Us, by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen

This domestic noir reads something like a modern day, reverse Rebecca. Vanessa, the jilted ex-wife of successful hedge fund manager, Richard, reminisces about the downfall of her marriage as she observes history repeating itself with his new fiancĂ©, Emma. It’s a carefully crafted, twisty thriller in which Richard embodies the ‘all that glitters’ trope.
