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?
From Miz Love Reviews “I adored the voice in Boystown. It’s 1st person—some people are born to write it, Marshall Thornton being one of them, in my opinion—and carries you along through Nick’s world and current case. There are three cases in this book, all wonderful, all equally interesting, and I couldn’t put the damn book down.”
From Dark Divas “…In brief, Marshall Thornton’s Boystown is an extremely satisfying read: it’s gritty with a strong lead and a lot of subtle character development accompanied by great sex scenes. But it’s mostly the eighties detective work that is the most appealing: Nowak has some luck and his guts and not much else, and it’s that which makes the reader root for him something fierce.”
