Created by James Dalessandro
According to reader Angelo Hazifotis, "If you have not read James Dalessandro's Bohemian Heart...you're missing one of the most beloved and original P.I.'s of the nineties." PEEKABOO' FRANKIE FAGAN is a former San Francisco cop turned private eye, obsessed with getting the goods on shady, but extremely powerful local developers the Farraguts. His obsession, in fact, is what cost him his job on the force, but when William Farragut IV is found murdered, his widow, the prime suspect, hires Franke to find evidence that will clear her of murder charges. Soon enough, of course, Frankie is in way over his head, wrapped up in the usual mess of betrayal, buried secrets, and lust.
James Dalessandro is a veteran screenwriter who returned to his first love, fiction, out of frustration with Hollywood. He considers his first novel, Bohemian Heart, to be a paen to one of his other great loves, San Francisco. He uses the city's history and colorful characters as the settings for his novels. Citizen Jane, a true crime story, is set in Marin County, and relates the story of Jane Alexander, a quiet housewife, who spent 13 years tracking down a murderer, and later founded Citizens Against Homicide to find justice for the families of murder victims. And a prequel to Bohemian Heart, entitled "1906", about the San Francisco earthquake and similar issues, is in the works.
