Blurb: Of all the plans a bride makes in anticipation for her wedding day, dying is definitely not one of them.
The Zampetaki mansion, on the remote island of Gadvos, welcomes dozens of guests for the grand wedding
of Cassandra Zampetaki and Homer Cara. It's a wedding that will never take place. The bride's lifeless body is found, brutally murdered, on the morning of the wedding. Planned to look like an open-and-shut case, the mastermind behind it all did not figure
on Hellenic Police Captain Costa Papacosta and Lieutenant Ioli Cara to be among the guests.
A storm rages outside and no one is able to leave the island. In a battle against time, the dynamic investigating duo must solve this intense case before the guilty party can depart from the island.
Everyone is a suspect and no one is safe.
Join in on the thrilling mystery and try to solve the crime. The clues are all there...

Luke has been on my radar for a while now but this is the first book of his that I've read. The opening chapter sets the scene with the death of a bride to be. As you might expect from a thriller, it is quite graphic at times which is fine for the blood
and gore types. On the other hand, the way in which the characters are all introduced at the same time and the fact that the police duo hold their inquiries in the library in an attempt to solve the mystery is very reminiscent of Agatha Christie. I loved the
descriptions of Crete and they have reinforced my urge to revisit the island. The plot is well constructed and the book is easy to read so I would thoroughly recommend this book. I'm now going to search out Luke's earlier standalone thrillers. For me, not
much can beat a good greek thriller unless it's actually reading it in Greece!
