The Secret is Out

If you could sum up Boystown 4 in three words, what would they be?

Gritty, suspenseful, addictive.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Boystown 4?

When Nick realizes he really loved Harker.

Which scene was your favorite?

Can't pinpoint just one.

Who was the most memorable character of Boystown 4 and why?

Nick. He is smart and stupid at the same time. I keep wondering when he's going to wise up and stop being so clueless about what's going on around him. (No spoilers)

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for the 5th audiobook.

Some conclusions and sadness

I think Brian and I both see Nick the same way, and I love that Babylon boi!! Three great stories, and finally someone evil is forestalled from one agenda. The sneak peek of book 5 starts with a shock, and I'm already crying about it. It seems one step forward and one huge push backwards. Needing book 5 now. The narrator's voice and expressions were excellent and added to my experience. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this story and am giving an honest review.

Great series

These books follow a private detective called Nick Nowak, set in the 1980s it follows his career, once a policeman and his love life. These are great short stories that all mingle and somethings are sad.
It's great remembering the things we did in the 80s. Great series.
