The period detail seems spot on - and the manoeuvering Nick is forced into is a joy to read.
Then it looks like the mob is getting involved, and Nick learns something more of the complications of doing business in the construction trades. A strange murder leads Nick and his friends down yet another torturous road to a surprise ending, but along the way there’s more to be said about Nick’s new relationship with his father and the “pile of rocks” he grew up in on Nob Hill. Now that Nick’s secretary, Marnie Wilson (homage to Della Street) is also his stepsister, there are complications in his life that are, for once, happy.
Plus, now that Nick’s husband, Carter Jones, the tall drink of water from Georgia, has his own budding career as an arson investigator working for their company, he’s away from home more. Nick’s loneliness stirs up all sorts of emotions he normally keeps tamped down. In Butterfield’s usual way, he mixes the detective story with an ongoing love story, and into that stirs fascinating facts about gay life in the bad old days. As ever, Nick’s coterie of once-wounded friends is there, backing him up and giving him purpose.
Carter is the dark horse in this book. Nick loves Carter, desperately, but he doesn’t always see him as being a proactive force in their life together. Let’s just say that Nick learns better this time around.
Nick and Carter's world is expanding around us (the readers), and it is such fun to behold! Oh...and there were some more one-liners that had me roar with laughter. Boy do I love that!
