Mariann Tadmor. Murder in San Francisco: A Jaime Prescott Mystery (2005) 268 pp. [tpo]
Private investigator Jamie Prescott still has it. The talent for landing in hot water, that is. When she attends a travel agents’ convention in San Francisco she is plunged into the mystery surrounding a missing true crime TV producer and his lost research materials. Ever undaunted, her probe brings about a confrontation with a local private eye, with the producer’s wife, and with his New York co-producer. Other characters such as a provocative “fair dinkum” Aussie, a visiting journalist, and a paroled murderer, muddy the waters.
Setting: San Francisco
