Scruples is the novel that  created publishing history, the first-and widely  acknowledged to be the very best-novel ever written  about the staggeringly luxurious life of a Beverly  Hills boutique and the people who work in it.  Scruples was translated into twenty  languages and made Rodeo Drive famous around the  world. The New York Post said  that "Scruples was born to  be a smash bestseller. . . It has more inside  information about the worlds of high fashion and  Hollywood than you'd find in a dozen manuals."  With Scruples, Judith Krantz earned her reputation  as a blazingly talented and original storyteller.  she takes her readers behind the scenes of wealthy  and fame to show them the real people and the real  emotions that exist at the core of even the most  high-powered lives. Scruples is the leader of her  #1 best-selling  novels.

Read an Excerpt

In Beverly Hills only the infirm and the senile do not drive their own cars. The local police are accustomed to odd combinations of vehicle and driver: the stately, nearsighted retired banker making an illegal left-hand turn in his Dino Ferrari, the teen-ager speeding to a tennis lesson in a fifty-five-thousand-dollar Rolls-Royce Corniche, the matronly civic leader blithely parking her bright red Jaguar at a bus stop.
