Manhattan is My Beat by Jeffery Deaver

Book Description

Back in 1988, a young author emerged onto the crime scene with a fresh and inspiring New York crime series starring a young aspiring film-maker - Rune. The series quickly established their author as one to watch. In this opener, Rune becomes obsessed with the murder of one of the customers at her video store. Mr Kelly had been renting the classic noir movie - MANHATTAN IS MY BEAT - over and over again and she swiftly becomes convinced that the secret to his brutal death is hidden in its black-and-white frames. But what she doesn't realise is that her interest is going to bring her far close to the killer than she ever could have wanted.

Book Review: Manhattan is My Beat by Jeffery Deaver - Reviewed by (28 Feb 2011)

Manhattan is My Beat is the first book in Jeffrey Deaver’s Rune series. The main character, Rune, is twenty and petite. She lives in a loft with a glass gazebo and her current employment is in a video store; she loves movies. Rune’s elderly friend is murdered and she becomes convinced he has found the million-dollar proceeds of a bank robbery in the 1930s. Determined to pursue this, she tangles with the NYPD, copywriters, actresses, hit men for the Mafia, illegal immigrants, screenwriters with Alzheimer’s and the US Marshals. Plenty of plot twists and quite a few laughs along the way. Rune seems to be a cross between Kinsey Milhone and Stephanie Plum. Refreshing!
