Book Review: Hard News by Jeffery Deaver - Reviewed by CloggieA (12 Mar 2011)
Hard News is the third (and, so far, final) book in Jeffrey Deaver’s Rune series. Rune is still living on her houseboat on the Hudson, now working for a TV network and becomes convinced that a man convicted of murdering the network boss has been wrongly jailed. She is determined to prove him innocent and get him set free. In this book, Rune manages to attract the ire of a bitchy anchorwoman, become the target of a hitman (once again), and find herself with the custody of a three-year-old girl. While there are plenty of plot twists to keep it interesting, this book is not as flawless as the first two: the get-out-of-jail scenario is rather far-fetched. Plenty of room for follow-on books if Deaver is ever so-inclined.
