    • Abstract:
      Summary: "On a fateful July morning in 2015, a riot takes hold of Her Majesty's Prison in Bream, Gloucestershire, with fatal consequences. The staff is caught completely off-guard--their supervising warden, Governor Magda Lyle, hasn't shown up for work, and the prisoners are able to start a fire that nearly results in a mass escape. Three years later and forty miles south, a most controversial wedding is about to take place in Bath's gorgeous Abbey, with a reception to follow in the famous Roman Baths. The daughter of career criminal mastermind Joe Irving--only just released from a long stint in prison--is getting hitched to the son of Deputy Chief Constable George Brace, one of the highest-ranking cops in all of Avon & Somerset. A more uncomfortable group of in-laws would be hard to imagine, but worse, charismatic and incorrigible Joe Irving has many enemies on "the outside," including more than one hard man hell-bent on settling accounts for the role the father of the bride played in the fateful Bream prison riot. There have been credible threats on Joe Irving's life since his release, and the wedding presents a high-profile opportunity for a hit attempt. The distressed DCC Brace retains detective Peter Diamond and his team to run security on the big day, hoping they can avert catastrophe. Joe Irving may be the arch enemy of every cop in southwest England, but they can't let him be killed at his daughter's wedding. Diamond is infuriated by the assignment, which becomes more and more impossible with every new fact he learns about the players and the logistics. Can Diamond pull off a miracle and keep the entire party alive until the couple is safely on their honeymoon?"-- Provided by publisher.
