A former police officer turned private investigator, Nick Nowak is haunted by his abrupt departure from the department, as well as, the traumatic end of his relationship with librarian Daniel Laverty. In these three stories set in Chicago during the early eighties, Nick locates a missing young man for a mysterious client, solves a case of arson at a popular nightspot, and goes undercover to prove a dramatic suicide was actually murder.

When he isn't detecting, and sometimes when he is, Nick moves through a series of casual relationships. But his long suppressed romantic side surfaces when he meets Detective Bert Harker. Will he give love another chance? Or, will he continue to bury himself in the arms of strangers?

I think if its ever on Audibles I be able to get into it. Marshall Thornton can write, there is no doubt about th...

4.0 Boystown: Three Nick Nowak Mysteries (Boystown Mysteries Book 1)
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...

3.5 Fun blast from the past
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...
