Blurb: It’s 1992 and Los Angeles is burning. Noah Valentine, the owner of Pinx Video in Silver Lake, notices the fires have taken their toll on fellow shopkeeper Guy Peterson’s camera shop. After the riots end, he decides to stop by Guy’s apartment to pick up his overdue videos, only to find Guy’s family dividing up his belongings. He died in the camera store fire—or did he? Noah and his downstairs neighbors begin to suspect something else might have happened to Guy Peterson. Something truly sinister.
The first in a new series from Lambda Award-winner Marshall Thornton, Night Drop strikes a lighter tone than the Boystown Mysteries, while bringing Silver Lake of the early 1990s to life..
Review: Video store owner Noah decides to get his overdue videos back only to discover the man, guy, is dead. Or is he. Along with his good friends and neighbors Marc and Louis they set out to determine what exactly is going on.
This story is dramatic. The riots in LA in the nineties was devastating and is brought to life in this murder mystery. The details were amazing, the writing fabulous and the overall story amazing. I felt as though I was there with the guys as they traversed through the clues.
The humor and closeness of these three men was comfortable. I really enjoyed the entire story from start to finish and am anxious to dive into the second book which I will dive into as soon as I finish this review.
