RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 430499334 LA English T1 Death in North Beach : a Carly Paladino and Noah Lang mystery A1 Tierney, Ronald., PB Severn House PP Sutton YR 2009 SN 9780727868503 0727868500 9781847511997 1847511996 AB An upscale gigolo believes the only way he won't be the prime suspect in the murder of a famous novelist is for the real murderer to be found. At least that's what his handsome and secretive fellow tells San Francisco private investigator Carly Paladino. She takes the case. Did she believe him or fall under his spell? Her new client also provides a handy list of "suspects" he says he received from the victim himself. Carly and her streetwise and skeptical partner, Noah Lang, stir up serious trouble when they try to find the victim's as yet unpublished tell-all manuscript. Much like Noah Beach itself, the suspects are trying to preserve the image they want the world to see. And it seems one death is not enough to conceal some inconvenient truths--Publisher's description.
