3 out of 5 (1 rating)


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...

Review by

Very readable, with lots of Deaver's plot twists and turns. This is set in the early 1980s and felt very dated. However Rune is an interesting character. It's quite gruesome in places and the plot holds together well. The problem is that terrible things happen to some of the characters along the way, and I'm not sure that I cared.
