Meet Frank Szatowski, a widowed UPS driver in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. He has spent the last three years estranged from his adult daughter Maggie—but as our story opens, Maggie calls home to announce that she’s getting married, and she wants her father to walk her down the aisle.
Maggie is marrying into one of the wealthiest families in the United States, and Frank is overjoyed for a chance to finally reconnect. But then he makes some alarming discoveries about his future son-in-law, Aidan Gardner, and learns that Aidan’s previous girlfriend has gone missing. Is Maggie about to make a fatal mistake? And can Frank express his concerns to his daughter without losing her all over again?
Set over a three-day wedding weekend on a lake in New Hampshire, THE LAST ONE AT THE WEDDING features all the same storytelling that made Hidden Pictures an international bestseller: a murder mystery, class warfare, lots of heart, and big surprises around every corner.
Jason Rekulak is the author of the international bestselling thriller Hidden Pictures (winner of the 2022 Goodreads Choice Award for Horror) and The Impossible Fortress (an Edgar Award finalist). His novels have been translated into more than 30 languages. He lives in Philadelphia with his wife and children.
