Third installment in the Boystown series (fourth if you count the prequel), this is so far my favorite one.
The spread of GRID*, and the rumors and reports about it, permeate the whole book. This gives a totally new perspective to Nick’s huge sexual “appetite”. The sense of impending doom gives a dark twist to all the impromptu hookups and random fucks: there’s a backroom’s bar scene, hot and steamy and at the same time sad and tragic, which will stay etched in my mind for multiple reasons.
But there’s much more: a nice and well done mystery plot, dry wit and a few glimpses of romance.
*Gay-related immune deficiency (GRID) was the name first proposed in 1982 to describe an "unexpected cluster of cases" of what is now known as AIDS source: Wikipedia
