Hard News is the third (and, so far, final) book in Jeffrey Deaver’s Rune series. Rune is still living on her houseboat on the Hudson, now working for a TV network and becomes convinced that a man convicted of murdering the network boss has been wrongly jailed. She is determined to prove him innocent and get him set free. In this book, Rune manages to attract the ire of a bitchy anchorwoman, become the target of a hitman (once again), and find herself with the custody of a three-year-old girl. While there are plenty of plot twists to keep it interesting, this book is not as flawless as the first two: the get-out-of-jail scenario is rather far-fetched. Plenty of room for follow-on books if Deaver is ever so-inclined. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553583298, Mass Market Paperback)

Rune is an aspiring filmmaker with more ambition than political savvy, paying her dues as an assistant cameraperson for the local news. But she's got her eyes on the prize, the network's hot newsmagazine, Current Events -- and she's got the story she knows will get her there.

Poking around in the video archives, Rune spots a taped interview with Randy Boggs, who's doing hard time in Attica for a murder he claims he didn't commit. Rune can't say exactly why, but she's sure he's innocent. If she can prove it, Current Events won't merely report the news, it'll make news -- and Rune's career.

But what she could be writing is Randy Boggs's epitaph -- and her own. Rune's newly discovered witness soon turns up dead. A hit man from Miami is on Rune's trail, and Boggs is finding prison even more dangerous than before. Someone wants this story killed, and it could be the girl with the camera who ends up on the cutting room floor.
