Manhattan Is My Beat Summary


Manhattan Is My Beat by Jeffery Deaver

Back in 1988, a young author emerged onto the crime scene with a fresh and inspiring New York crime series starring a young aspiring film-maker - 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. But what she doesn't realise is that her interest is going to bring her far close to the killer than she ever could have wanted.
