Boystown 2: Three More Nick Nowak Mysteries

Boystown 2: Three More Nick Nowak Mysteries - Marshall Thornton This was even better than the first book. There was more continuity and connection in the three stories and we get a bit deeper into Nick's character.

Nick is trying to make a relationship work with closeted cop, Bert Harker and has an understanding of the pressures Harker faces. They are not exclusive and Nick is still sleeping around. To put even more of a strain on things, Nick is drawn into the serial killer case Harker is working on, which also brings him back in touch with his ex-boyfriend Daniel.

There is a more serious and more emotional tone to this book. The sleuthing is just as good and there is a storyline that continues throughout the three mysteries. I would also have to say the ending was a bit of a cliff hanger. The tone is still dark and clearly about to get darker, but I am completely drawn in and looking forward to it.
