About this ebook

On an island full of intrigue, a killer’s identity is the best kept secret.

Policewoman Christine Lane felt the humiliation like a slap. Transferred to this sleepy island station, she could almost hear her career screeching to a halt. 

During a violent protest on the island, a resident is found dead and Christine is hurt. Her boss threatens to sack her for incompetence and she vows to maintain a low profile.

When the homicide leads dry up, Christine is shocked when investigators move on to their next case. So she secretly gathers information on suspects, digging up local dirt. When Christine is ambushed, she knows she is closing in on the perpetrator. Can she flush out the murderer before she is shut down for good?

Final Look is the first standalone book in the award-winning Christine Lane mystery series. 

If you like strong female protagonists, a lush island setting and page-turning suspense, then you’ll love Dianne Scott’s Final Look.

Buy FINAL LOOK for an engrossing mystery featuring an unforgettable female sleuth and a cast of intriguing side characters.  Perfect for fans of Karin Slaughter’s COP TOWN, Edward Conlon’s THE POLICEWOMEN’S BUREAU and Louise Penny’s ARMAND GAMACHE series.
