"Like most guys, I'm a sucker for easy sex and a fast buck. Unlike most guys, I should know better."
Finalist for the Lambda Award in Gay Mystery, Boystown: Three Nick Nowak Mysteries takes place in Chicago during the early 1980s. Haunted by his abrupt departure from the Chicago Police Department and the end of his relationship with librarian Daniel Laverty, Nick Nowak is a beat cop-turned-dogged private investigator. In this first book of the best-selling series, Nick works through three cases: a seemingly simple missing persons search, an arson investigation, and a suicide that turns out to be anything but. While working the cases, Nick moves through a series of casual relationships until he meets homicide detective Bert Harker and begins a tentative relationship.
The Boystown Mysteries are 18+ for gay sexual content, language and violence.

I think if its ever on Audibles I be able to get into it. Marshall Thornton can write, there is no doubt about th...
This is written about the early 80's. It really took me there. During the time period, gays weren't accepted and safe sex wasn't a big deal. It isn't romanticized. If you're looking for something romantic or erotic, this probably isn't for you. The mysteries are great. The lead role is real, n...
Ack... I loved this! Chicago, early 1980s, quaaludes, and the hot guys in bikini underwear! I cannot even begin to tell you all the buttons Nick Nowak pushes for me. While I am a confirmed Californian now, I grew up in the Chicago area and spent many impressionable years there, so I feel like Nick a...
He is smart but reckless. He is promiscuous, yet very lonely. He might appear as cold and sometimes ruthless, but he is hurt too. And he is sexy as hell...Marshall Thornton's vivid writing makes Nick so real, it was like watching 3D movie. I just wish I could hide and 'watch' it undisturbed ;)
