【內容介紹】回最上方

On an island off the coast of Ireland, guests gather to celebrate two people joining their lives together as one. The groom: handsome and charming, a rising television star. The bride: smart and ambitious, a magazine publisher. It's a wedding for a magazine, or for a celebrity: the designer dress, the remote location, the luxe party favors, the boutique whiskey. The cell phone service may be spotty and the waves may be rough, but every detail has been expertly planned and will be expertly executed.

But perfection is for plans, and people are all too human. As the champagne is popped and the festivities begin, resentments and petty jealousies begin to mingle with the reminiscences and well wishes. The groomsmen begin the drinking game from their school days. The bridesmaid not-so-accidentally ruins her dress. The bride's oldest (male) friend gives an uncomfortably caring toast.

And then someone turns up dead. Who didn't wish the happy couple well? And perhaps more important, why?

 

在靠近愛爾蘭海岸的一個小島上,賓客們齊聚一堂慶祝一對新人的婚禮。新郎:帥氣迷人,是一位剛出道的電視明星。新娘:一位聰明具野心的雜誌社老闆。這是場為了雜誌或名人舉辦的婚禮:名牌禮服、地點偏僻、派對奢華、加上精品威士忌。雖然手機通訊時好時壞而且海浪兇險,但是每個細節都經過了精心計劃,也將照表執行。
 
但是,完美僅只於策劃而已,人還是敵不過人性。隨著開香檳開始慶祝活動,夙怨和小小的嫉妒揉雜著美好的回憶和祝福。伴郎開始了學生時代的拚酒遊戲。伴娘弄壞了衣裳也不令人意外。新娘年長的(男性)友人在舉杯祝賀時更說了一些不堪入耳的話。
 
接著有人死了。是誰不希望這對夫妻幸福過日?或許更重要的,是什麼原因?
