110:31 The Bride Wore Black Leather by Simon Green

The 12th book in the Nightside series.  It's the night before John and Suzie's wedding and John wants one last case as a PI.  Nothing too exciting, nothing that would make him late for his wedding, just one last case to work before settling down as Walker.  But when the case takes a wrong turn, everyone starts gunning for him, even his bride-to-be.

Now here's the problem.  That's the basic blurby thing they give you on all the reviews.  I kept waiting for it to happen.  2/3 of the way through the book she tells him that he's the biggest bounty yet and she can't turn that down and then we don't see her again until the end.  It was really misleading and while I think the general story was fine as written, putting that in the blurbs led to a certain expectation that wasn't met.  So there's my spoiler for you, it's not a big game of cat & mouse or hide & seek between John and Suzie.  It doesn't happen like that.  There are tons of other people gunning for John but she's not hot on his heels at any time, until the end.
