This is the second Rune novel. I was quite impressed with the first one, but this second one literally blew me away!
Rune is an absolutely great character. She is likeable, amusing, and great company. Deaver's writing is puncy, to the point, and exciting. I found myself turning the pages rapidly.
the plot is really good, as always with a Deaver novel. there is also some emotion packed in with it. There is excitement, tension, intrigue...all the things you need to make a good thriller. these Rune books are really easy, they're light, too, but not over simple. I find them even more pageturners than his normal stuff. i don't know why...i just really cant wait to find out whats going to happen and why. the characters are compelling and the plot great.
i really cannot describe what i like so much about this series, but i absolutely love it! It is a breath of fresh air, and i am really sad that there is only one book left. i really hope Deaver writes another Rune book sometimes, because this really is a great series.
With "Death os A Blue Movie Star" he creates his usual complex plot, and packs it with stuff. it's fast paced, and fairly races along to what is an absolutely stunning climax, in true Deaver style. As always, there are several twists throughout the book, and its great fun trying to guess what they'll be...and i was not right once!
Deaver is the best thriller/suspense writer out there. I love his books to pieces.

The main character Rune does not continue her unique development and insight to the world, as she did in Manhattan is My Beat. And while it does deal with an interesting story of those that are sometimes forgotten by a society who considers some less than worthwhile, it never really gets enough steam to say that they shouldn't be forgotten. On the other hand, it does get into the personality quirks of several people, including those that society would deem worthwhile, but have secrets the world doesn't know.
Reading this story will be ok, but don't expect the same level of enjoyment as from Manhattan is My Beat.

With this, the second novel to feature the bizarre Rune, Deaver once again tempers his hard-edge tale with Rune's usual wierdness and inexperience in the world of crime fighting.
This time, Rune becomes obsessed with a porn star whose murder she witnessed. Armed with a camera and her quirky attitude, Rune dives into the porn industry and ferrets out clues and suspects ... and once again puts her life in mortal danger.
Once again Deaver delivers a compulsively readable novel, but the twists in this one are more guessible than usual, especially the final (whichs shows Rune is kinder to certain people than they deserve) and next to no mention is made of the murders she experienced in the first book. Still, pretty good.

When I first started to go back and read Jeffery Deaver's older novels, I was not sure where the character Rune fit in. This character is so off from the rest of Deaver's characters that most reader have come to expect. However this wildly dressed, mostly unemployed young woman with the Peter Pan "I will never grow up" attitude toward life has a tendency to grow on you. The reader starts to like her more and more with every page turned.
"Death of A Blue Movie Star" finds Rune working for a production company that does good documentries and bad commercials. On her way to work Rune is a witness to the bombing of a adult movie theater. This gets Rune to thinking that a documentary on the bombings is a good idea. She borrows the equipment from work and befriends Shelly Lowe, and adult movie actress whose film was showing in the theater. Then a second bomb goes and takes the actress with it and Rune is thrown into a murder mystery that takes her through the wide range of suspects. She also befriends and falls in love with Sam Healy a NYPD bomb unit officer. Will Rune find the killer and get her movie made is the main theme of the novel.
Once again Deaver uses many sub plots and motives for the bad guys, which makes for a gripping ending. Rune is much more well rounded in this novel from the first and is not as irritatiing. Maybe Deaver is letting her grow up a little in this one, but she still is the same Rune. This is a strong solid read for any Deaver fan.
