Part of the author's brief (so far) series about the unique heroine Rune. A good read!

This book has "ticking-bomb suspense" but has many light moments, too. It seems, to me, to be completely different from Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme series. This is the first of a 3 book series, which features Rune, an aspiring filmmaker with punk tendencies, in New York City. She gets caught up in a dangerous adventure more chilling than anything Hollywood could dream up. She is a good investigator and ends up solving the crime and is a witness for the prosecution.
I thought it was a fun book even though it is a murder mystery.

There were a couple of VERY surprising twists that completely surprised me.

Five feet two inches os slick repartee, near purple hair, and a poetic imagination, twenty year old Rune hasn't been in Manhattan very long. But she's crafty enough to have found a squatter's paradise in an empty TriBeCa loft, and a video store job that feeds her pasion for old movies. It's a passion she shares with her favorite customer, Mr. Elly, a lonely old man who rents the same vidoe over and over. The flick is a noir classic based on a real life unsolved bank hesit and a million missing dollars. It's called Manhattan Is My Beat.
That's the tape Rune is picking up from Mr. Kelly's shabby apartment when she finds him shot to death.

A charming young woman who believes in magic and quests, and changes her name to fit each new job, searches New York for a mythical fortune. Due to her choice of adventure instead of education, she misunderstands much of what is said to her. And disregards most of what she does understand.

A video store employee (Rune) goes to pick up a video (Manhatten Is My Beat) from a customer and finds him shot to death. The police think it was a robbery gone wrong, but Rune thinks the key to solving the murder is in the video that the man watched over and over.
