"Michael Ledwidge writing solo is even better than Michael Ledwidge and James Patterson. Beach Wedding is his best yet. Incredible wealth, beach houses, murder, dysfunctional families—how can you beat all that? READ THIS BOOK!" —James Patterson on Beach Wedding
A high-society wedding party stirs up new evidence in an unsolved murder in this thrilling stand-alone from the New York Times bestselling coauthor of James Patterson’s Now You See Her and The Quickie.
Hamptons sand… Hamptons money… Hamptons murder…
When Terry Rourke is invited to the spare-no-expense beach wedding of his hedge fund manager brother, he thinks that his biggest worry will be flubbing the champagne toast. But this isn’t the first time Terry has been to the Hamptons.
As the designer tuxedos are laid out and the flowers arranged along the glittering surf, Terry can’t help but take another look at a decades-old murder trial that rocked the very foundations of the town—and his family. He soon learns that digging up billion-dollar sand can be a very dangerous activity. The kind of danger that can very quickly turn even the most beautiful beach wedding into a wake.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Wealth and power can’t conceal the truth in Michael Ledwidge’s crime thriller set amongst the picturesque beaches and outrageous soirées of the Hamptons. Ever since a local billionaire’s murder nearly destroyed his family, police officer Terry Rourke has stayed as far away from Long Island as possible. But when his brother’s impending nuptials bring him back to his old stomping grounds—and face to face with those who tried to take everything from him—Terry decides to reopen his father’s decades-old case and finally put the killer behind bars. The quick-witted Terry is a charming, easy-to-root-for hero, which makes his risky hunt for the truth even more fun to follow. We love how Ledwidge gives us humorous family dysfunction alongside the twisty mystery. Beach Wedding is a gripping story about family, loyalty, and settling old scores.
Philadelphia police officer Terry Rourke, the winning narrator of this entertaining thriller from bestseller Ledwidge (Run for Cover), has reluctantly returned to the Hamptons for the first time since he left for college some 20 years earlier, to attend his brother Tom's extravagant wedding. Now a wealthy New York City hedge fund manager, Tom has pulled out all the stops for the occasion, renting a Southampton dream house, complete with chefs, maids, and gardeners, that costs $500,000 per month. Tom has plans "to stick it to" certain members of the Southampton elite who made life difficult for the Rourke family when the boys were growing up in Hampton Bays, "the poor man's Hamptons," after their father, Suffolk County's head assistant district attorney, tried socialite Hailey Sutton for killing her husband, Noah. Memories of the worst period in Terry's life come flooding back, and he becomes obsessed with discovering the real story about Noah's death. Meanwhile, others want the truth to remain dead and buried. Appealing characters and snappy patter more than compensate for the so-so ending. Ledwidge really knows how to tell a story.
