On Saturday, April 2nd, five April brides discover their wedding-dresses have been stolen from a Manhattan bridal salon. One of the brides is none other than private investigator, Regan Reilly, whose wedding to Jack "no relation" Reilly, head of the New York Police Major Case Squad, is just seven days away. The timing is terrible, but Regan gets on the case, and in the process meets an unusual mix of brides and grooms-to-be. Meanwhile, Jack is at work trying to solve a perplexing series of bank robberies, a case he's determined to crack before he heads for the altar. The author fuses the two seemingly unconnected mysteries with an ingenious twist, taking readers from the streets of New York to the casinos of Atlantic City and finally to that most popular of wedding venues, Las Vegas.

Publishers Weekly, 2006-03-13 Nervous brides may want to wait until after the wedding to read bestseller Clark's winning ninth mystery to feature PI Regan Reilly (after 2005's Burned). With her wedding to Jack "no relation" Reilly, head of the NYPD Major Case Squad, only a week away, Regan thinks she has everything under control. But when she arrives to pick up her wedding dress at Alfred and Charisse's Coutures in Little Italy, she finds the young husband-and-wife designers bound and gagged, a wedding dress shredded on the floor and four others missing, including her own. In spite of all she must do before the wedding, Regan agrees to investigate. Jack, hoping to solve a big bank robbery case before their nuptials, is more than supportive. To Regan's surprise, not all the brides-to-be who've lost their gowns are that distraught. Regan's and Jack's cases convincingly intertwine as the sleuthing trail leads them from the streets of New York to Las Vegas. With her usual cast of quirky characters, Clark's lighthearted romp will keep readers guessing who will and who won't make it to the altar. (Apr.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
