Overview

A venture capitalist tumbles off a balcony during a biotechnology conference in Boston and reporter Addy McNeil gets a chance to regain her foundering career when the only suspect in the murder is her ex-boyfriend. Can she pull herself together and secure the exclusive? And is she a match for a man who needs her good will to prove his innocence.

As Addy dives into the heady world of Boston's emerging biotechnology industry of the early 1990s, she finds plenty of motive for murder as well as some truths she'd rather not know.

This book, a prequel to the Hallie Ahern series (the characters name was changed as the series switched publishers) was named one of the top ten mysteries of 2001 by The Drood Review of Mystery and

Editorial Reviews

Editors Choice Award 2002
Mysteries are about putting pieces together into a picture that reveals a killer. Brogan does this with a sure hand. At the end, she also gives us the text of the story that Addy files. Each line of this article resonates with meaning, given what the characters have gone through, and it's as fine a resolution to a mystery as we've read in a long time."
Mystery Notes
Set in the early 1990s biotech proliferation in Boston, Jan Brogan's Final Cop, her first mystery novel, lands its heroine in the thick of rekindled romance, cutthroat venture capitalism and abundant murder motives.
Sam Coale
Brogan knows how to quicken the suspense and parcel out revelations as the book accelerates to its stunning conclusion. She has produced a swift, sure-footed mystery that, I hope, will inaugurate a great new series.
