Not sure if this should be posted here or in General Writing. Anyway, I'm looking for opinions regarding a particular scene in the novel I'm working on. For the entire novel the third person POV shifts between three main characters, except for one scene that I currently have written from the POV of a character other than the main three. It is only one scene and she is a fairly minor character. My question is, is this completely unheard of? Poor style? Some people I've asked have told me "if it works, do it." For some reason I'm not completely satisfied with that. Does anyone know of another novel that has done this successfully? Or conversely, is anyone aware of a reason this absolutely does not/can not work? A little bit of context for the scene: this character turns out to the be only alibi for man accused of a crime. However, she goes missing. I find it difficult to just tell the reader she has gone missing without any explanation for it. I feel the single scene from her POV can show rather than tell why she leaves town and is a satisfying prelude to her disappearance. One other option I thought of is her leaving a note behind which can explain her leaving town, but I feel this to be a little bit forced and contrived. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
