Overview

From the bestselling author of the Bone Collector novels, soon to be an NBC series

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.

I'm one of the biggest Deaver fans, however this book was hard for me to read because it was right down boring. I forced myself to read the entire book, but I feel that it was a waste of my time. On the other hand, I believe that some teenagers would relate to, and enjoy this book. I have read all of Deaver's books, and this is the only one that let me down.

I absolutely love Jeffery Deaver's books, but I was disappointed with 'Hard News'. I liked the Rune character but the story is not a page-turner.
