First edition. Signed by the author. As new, unread copy in dust jacket. 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 about to be released from prison. Ben's father George is Bath's Deputy Chief Constable. The wedding is set to take place in the Abbey and the reception in the Roman Baths. Peter Diamond, Bath's head of CID, is appalled to be put in charge of security on that 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 and bossy photographers. 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?
