FOOLPROOF is the fourth in the critically acclaimed Iris Thorne mystery series by Los Angeles Times bestseller Dianne Emley, now available as an e-book and trade paperback.

“ and smooth with lots of deadly twists...” —Michael Connelly

"Another winner..." —Kirkus (starred review)

From where she stands in her newly purchased beachfront bungalow—complete with cozy garage for her beloved red Triumph convertible—life looks good for investment counselor Iris Thorne. The only clouds on her horizon are her boss from hell and the never-ending office battles at McKinney Alitzer. But one hot night, everything changes. Her dear friend Bridget is brutally murdered next to her backyard swimming pool, and the sole witness is Brianna, her five-year-old daughter. The primary suspect is Bridget’s husband, Kip—the volatile creative genius behind the couple’s computer games company, Pandora.

Bridget surprised everyone—especially Kip—when she left her majority stake in Pandora not to her husband, but to her daughter. And she named Iris as administrator of Brianna’s trust. Suddenly, Iris must deal with conflicting emotions as the evidence mounts against Kip and she finds herself responsible for the financial future of a little girl—and maybe even the five-year-old’s life.

Exposing the deadly tensions behind the glamorous facades of Brentwood mansions and laying bare the riddles along a dark stretch of the Pacific Coast Highway, Dianne Emley has marked the L.A. mystery with a style all her own. And with "her bold moral compass, her appealing in-your-face attitude and unsettled romantic life, Iris is a compelling heroine" (Publishers Weekly) who "deserves our undivided attention" (Los Angeles Times Book Review).

Editorial Reviews

Michael Connelly
“Foolproof reads the way [Emley’s] heroine Iris Thorne drives her Triumph—fast and smooth with lots of deadly twists in the road. You can put the top down and cruise with this one.”
Robert Crais
An intricate, involving, suspenseful mystery. Welcome to Iris Thorne’s world, where nothing is as it seems.
Cleveland Plain Dealer - Les Roberts
With her fourth novel [Emley] has just gotten better. And since she was pretty darn good to start with, that’s quite an accomplishment. [Emley] writes fascinatingly of the cutthroat world of computer games, and with beautiful and single Iris Thorne as her protagonist, she manages to give the most innocuous scenes an undercurrent of sizzling sensuality. [Emley] is a writer who deserves attention.
Los Angeles Times Book Review - Dick Lochte
[Foolproof offers]…a spiky heroine, well-thought-out characters, and a tricky…storyline.
