A most controversial wedding is about to take place in Bath's gorgeous Abbey. The daughter of career criminal mastermind Joe Irving is getting hitched to the son of Deputy Chief Constable George Brace. A more uncomfortable group of in-laws would be hard to imagine, but worse, Joe Irving has many enemies on "the outside," including more than one hard man hell-bent on settling accounts for the role he played in the fateful Bream Prison riot three years earlier. The distressed DCC Brace retains detective Peter Diamond and his team to run security on the big day. Can Diamond pull off a miracle and keep the entire party alive until the couple is safely on their honeymoon?
