I think North was lying.  The police dossier says that he was the 
chief of Iron Boot when he was arrested, and I suspect his arrest
was in connection with this.  Probably he doesn't want to mention
this, and since many of the other prisoners are in for breach of
promise, that's the easiest way to fit in.

Does anybody else think the nuse let him out of the hospital in
exchange for sex?  It doesn't matter whether she thought he could 
survive afterwards or whether she just thought he was nuts; there's
adequate motivation either way.  And this adds extra significance
to North's comment "Not a word about her, you notice?  They're 
afraid they'll make them quit using nurses on the men's floor."

The conversation at the beginning of chapter 34 may indicate that
North knows Lara.  My opinion is that he was her lover as well (although
it appears that he doesn't know she's the Goddess, unless he's lying 
about that as well).
