She calls herself Rune. She lives a downtown life and works running errands for a couple of documentary filmakers. At twenty-one, she's nowhere, and that's not where she wants to be. So, armed with a borrowed Betacam, she embarks on a freelance career of making movies herself. Unfortunately her first attempt - within the hallowed walls of the XXX Velvet Venus Theatre - was unexpectedly interesting. A bomb takes out half the cinema and a number of patrons. Rune, however, sees the possibilities and decides to track the culprit through the New York underworld - with her camera in tow, as well as Bomb Squad Detective Sam Healy. And thus begins her journey into the heart of the city of neon nightmares...

Book Review: Death of a Blue Movie Star by Jeffery Deaver - Reviewed by CloggieA (12 Mar 2011)
Death of a Blue Movie Star is the second book in Jeffrey Deaver’s Rune series. Rune is living on a houseboat and working at becoming a film-maker. Following bomb attacks on adult theatres and studios, she decides to make a documentary about the life of a blue movie star. As usual, she gets involved in far more than she intends, including porn stars, the NYPD bomb squad, religious fanatics and leathergoods ads. Rune’s naiveté is truly entertaining. With an excellent plot twist at the end, this a great read
