Summary

As a New Year begins in Bath, Ben Brace proposes to his long-term girlfriend, Caroline. The problem is that she's the daughter of notorious crime baron Joe Irving, who is coming to the end of a prison sentence. And Ben's father George is Bath's Deputy Chief Constable. But mothers and sons are a formidable force: a wedding in the Abbey and reception in the Roman Baths are set in place before the career-obsessed DCC can step in.   

Peter Diamond, Bath's head of CID, is appalled to be put in charge of security on the day. Ordered to be discreet, he packs a gun and a guest list in his best suit and must somehow cope with potential killers, gang rivals, warring parents, bossy photographers and straying bridesmaids. The laid-back Joe Irving seems oblivious to the danger he is in from rival gang leaders, while Brace can't wait for the day to end. 

Will the photo session be a literal shoot? Will Joe Irving's speech as father of the bride be his last words? Can Diamond pull off a miracle, avert a tragedy and send the happy couple on their honeymoon?

Peter Diamond is better than Morse

I love this series of books. The area around Bath is always brought to life. Peter Diamond seems a grumpy likeable main character; and they are consistently good books. The narrator has a voice which goes with the character. Excellent

Another brilliant book by Peter!

A book I couldn't stop listening to, always a twist in his books and so well executed.

Would recommend this book to anyone

Not up to usual standards

I am a big fan of Peter Lovesey and his Diamond series. I found this book very disapointing. The story was slight and very long winded.
