    Back in 1988, a young author emerged onto the crime scene with a fresh and inspiring New York crime series starring a young aspiring filmmaker - 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.

    Rune is here at last.

    I loved reading the Rune books years ago but audible is better. More please.

    She calls herself Rune. She lives a downtown life and works running errands for documentary filmmakers. At 21, she's "nowhere", and that's not where she wants to be. So, armed with a borrowed video camera, she embarks on a freelance career of making movies herself. Unfortunately, her first attempt within the XXX Velvet Venus Theatre was unexpectedly interesting. A bomb takes out half the cinema. Rune, however, sees the possibilities and decides to track the culprit through the New York underworld.

From there, her career as a budding documentary maker can really take off. However, nothing in Rune's life is ever that simple.
