Podrobný popis:

Publikace: Manhattan is My Beat - Jeffery Deaver. Jeffrey Deaver knows how to hook readers and keep them guessing

with suspenseful, twisty plots. This early Deaver effort,

originally published in 1988, will not disappoint fans dazzled by

his subsequent, high-profile Lincoln Rhyme series (The Bone

Collector, The Coffin Dancer, The Empty Chair.)

Manhattan Is My Beat takes its name from the (invented) 1947 film

noir watched obsessively by murder victim Robert Kelly. Our

heroine, Rune, (a punk with a heart of gold) works for Washington

Square Video. On a routine pickup to retrieve Manhattan Is My Beat,

she discovers Kelly just shot dead, the target of a professional

hit. Rune and a woman jogger glimpse the presumed killer as he

speeds off in a green car. While cops drag their heels in solving

the mystery, Rune takes matters into her own hands, convinced that

the motive for the murder is a missing suitcase stuffed with one

million dollars--the subject, not coincidentally, of the film that

Kelly and Rune both admired. An avid fan of fantasy novels and

prone to see life through the prism of magic and quests, Rune takes

up the challenge of finding the lost money and catching Kelly's

killers. But the formidable hit team is intent upon destroying both

possible witnesses to the murder, and their nimble crosses and

double-crosses--some of which the reader sees, some of which are

revealed at the end--make for fun reading. Plotting moves briskly in this novel, except for a slowdown in the

story--Rune's ambiguous romance with downtown poseur Richard has

little to do with catching killers. The conclusion, while neatly

wrapped, is marred by the sudden appearance of a crucial detail

that Deaver produces like a fancy dish under the waiter's silver

dome. But the gimmick to offset the conclusion's predictability

feels like a cheat rather than a revelation. All in all, however,

the novel is excellent mind candy, a thrilling romp lead by an

agile, street-smart heroine. Deaver writes with clarity, compassion, and intelligence, and

with a decidedly human and contemporary slant -- -- Publishers
