Little Boy Dead: A Boystown Prequel - Marshall Thornton

Prequel to the series. Written after the first novels were written. We meet Nick Nowak as he begins his life as a private investigator and takes a side job as driver and security person for a film festival. This short novella establishes Nick's fears, what drives him, how he does things. Nowak is right from the start a get his man kinda of private dick.

The pacing of the story holds up, the twist at the end also. It does deal with subjects reminiscent of a certain American/Polish film director. So it might be triggery for some.

Overall, good prequel.
