Mystery Woman Sleuth | Thriller
Five feet two inches of slick repartee, near-purple hair,
and poetic imagination, twenty-year-old Rune hasn't been
in Manhattan for very long. But she's crafty enough to
have found a squatter's paradise in an empty TriBeCa loft,
and a video store job that feeds her passion for old
movies. It's a passion she shares with her favorite
customer, Mr. Kelly, a lonely old man who rents the same
video over and over. The flick is a noir classic based on
a real-life unsolved bank heist and a million missing
dollars. It's called Manhattan Is My Beat.
That's the tape Rune is picking up from Mr. Kelly's shabby
apartment when she finds him shot to death. The police
suspect a robbery gone wrong, but Rune is certain the key
to solving the murder is hidden somewhere in the hazy,
black-and-white frames of Mr. Kelly's beloved movie. But
as Rune hits the mean streets of New York to find answers,
she gets caught up in a dangerous adventure more chilling
than anything Hollywood could dream up.
