As he is packing up his office for the move to Boystown, Nick Nowak picks up a case that leaves him feeling very uneasy. Unfortunately just about everything in his life right now is making him feel that way.
The prognosis is not good, but Bert Harker has known that for some time. There are so many more questions than answers right now, but he cannot ignore the signs.
Moving from one drab office space to another, Nick mulls over the results of his newest case, and what he realizes is that he cannot just walk away. Someone very influential is behind the death of two elderly defenseless men, and Nick has a very good idea who. And right now he wants nothing more than to bury himself in work so he does not have to think of what his happening with his lover. They may not have a perfect relationship, but Nick loves Harker, and it is tearing him apart to imagine losing this man.
The early eighties is a very unsettling time for the gay community, a fact that is hitting home for Nick and Harker. It is easy to imagine the fear crawling up Nick’s spine as he watches his lover slowly waste away, and you can understand his need to bury his feelings any way possible. Nick is no boy scout, but even with all of his rough edges, his determination to see justice done makes this well worth your time. These men are gritty and real, and you cannot help but want more.
