Bohemian Heart

A novel by

"Peekaboo" Frankie Fagen is a long-haired, leather-jacketed private detective, best known for his unconventional methods and the Norton Commando he rides through his beloved San Francisco. When summoned to a box at the opera, he meets the beautiful Colleen Farragut, due to go on trial the next day for the murder of her husband, the city's richest and most powerful real estate developer and a lifelong Fagen nemesis. A million-dollar bonus is Frankie's if he finds the burglars Colleen claims were the actual killers - but the real prize would be a century's worth of Farragut diaries that document a family tradition of criminal activity and corruption. With evidence and public sentiment stacked against his client, Frankie, motivated by both love and revenge, races against the clock to find the killer and save Colleen.

"Epic....Dalessandro writes like a reincarnated Dashiell Hammetf... more than a mystery, a riff into a storybook city's heart of darkness...hands down the most colorful San Francisco character since Dirty Harry...." Marvin Wolf, Los Angeles Daily News.

"Energetic prose and stylish inventions..." San Francisco Chronicle

"A great read, very smart, almost too smart." - Barry Gifford, author of "The Adventures of Sailor and Luna" (Wild at Heart)
