Book #2 in the Rune Trilogy (published 1990)
Twenty-one-year-old Rune is an aspiring filmmaker, but so far her only break has been scoring a job as an underpaid production assistant in Manhattan. Still, she’s always on the lookout for the perfect topic for her own film and she thinks she´s found it when she witnesses the bombing of a triple-X movie theater in Times Square.
Rune´s got a great hook for her documentary: She plans to film it through the eyes of Shelly Lowe, the porn star whose movie was playing at the theater when it exploded. But just hours after Rune films a poignant Shelly reflecting on her dreams of becoming a serious actress, a second bomb silences the beautiful film star forever.
Was Shelly in the wrong place at the wrong time or was she the bomber´s target all along? Rune vows to find out the truth behind the death of this blue movie star. But as she struggles to finish shooting her film, Rune´s labor of love may be her final masterpiece as a shooting of a more lethal kind threatens to write an ending to this story that no one wants to see….
