Christine Finlayson is the author of Tip of a Bone, a mystery novel set on the wild and windswept Oregon coast: When Maya Rivers moves to Newport, seeking a reunion with her brother, Harley, she doesn’t expect to encounter buried bones, a missing eco-activist, or a deadly fire. And she sure doesn’t anticipate her brother being accused of an unthinkable crime. Devastated, Maya insists on adding “amateur sleuth” to her career options and starts digging. Yet the closer she gets to the truth, the closer a murderer follows. Called “a page turner” by Coast Weekend, Tip of a Bone offers a glimpse into Newport Noir.
