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…

Reviews

Deaver is a terrific storyteller, and he takes the reader on a rollercaoster of suspense, violence and mystery . . . Good entertainment
Susanna Yager, Daily Telegraph
Jeffery Deaver's fiendish new suspense thriller . . . Amazing as it sounds, Deaver makes the intellectual puzzle the most thrilling part of his high-anxiety drama, which twists, turns and leaves us weak
The New York Times Book Review
Principal characters unusually vivid and sympathetic.... Rapidly paced, wholly engrossing tale
Publisher's Weekly
A truly engrossing thriller. Psychological thriller writers do not come much better than Deaver. His cogent plotting, smooth characterisation and (best of all) psychological profiling of his villains is all nonpareil
