The most unlikely person in the world asks Private Investigator Nick Nowak to investigate the un-suspicious death of a priest. It's winter 1984, Private Investigator Nick Nowak has allowed his life to fall to pieces: he's stopped taking cases, lost his apartment and works as a bartender at a sleazy bar tucked under the El. All he wants to do is lick his wounds after the death of his lover, Detective Bert Harker. But, when the least likely person in the world shows up and asks him to take a new case he finds himself investigating the very un-suspicious heart attack death of a priest. Nick is convinced he's wasting his time until the clues begin to add up to.

Marshall Thornton and Brad Langer at their best. Nick Nowak is a wonderful character and I love hearing about his daily interactions and mishaps.
Again, Brad Langer's narration.
He's actually so well suited for Nick Nowak. I haven't listened too much to other stories. I've tried but its more I didn't like the other stories enough to purchase the audio.
I'm afraid I get this series mixed up (as I'm on the last book) - but each of the series is great. I've enjoyed every one of them.
Marshall Thornton's Boystown novels are all noir, much like Lee James' "Errors and Omissions."
In all six novels of the Boystown series, Nick Nowak is my favorite. He's hot, horny, ruggedly handsome, hilariously sarcastic...and did I mention brilliant?
Nick Nowak. Believe I covered the "why" above.
Listen to all six novels in the Boystown series.
