This was a quiet one, and I for one, was grateful for the emotional respite. Although Nick isn’t really the harried husband of the title, he might as well be. This is the book where I cried for Nick.
Our boys are back home in the pile of rocks on Nob Hill. There is a bit of adventure by means of an alleged sting operation that Nick and Carter get pulled into (the supposed harried husband), but that turns out to be something quite different, and rather more dangerous, than they bargained for. This offers a slightly lame excuse for another fascinating but only mildly eventful side trip to Phoenix. This jaunt feels a bit random, but in fact turns out to be the perfect quiet mini-adventure we all needed. Nick gets to be Nick and our boys get to grow beards. How could that be bad?
The really interesting aspect of this volume in the series is that Nick Williams finally looks inward. With all the global traumas of the last five years, and Carter’s 40th birthday in the picture, Nick finally decides to do some professional soul-searching. What he learns—and what we learn as well—is both surprising and affirming. It is another reminder, deftly handled by Butterfield, that the vast majority of gay men in 1960 still didn’t have any kind of support network of family and friends. Nick begins to see that he’s at the center of something special. Nick and Carter’s years in Africa taught them that it’s not just about their money; it’s about making the world a better place. As Nick and Carter head toward middle age, this might just become their raison d’etre.
I can't wait to read more!
There are a lot of fun plot threads in this particular outing, and, without spoiling any, Marnie finally gets some face time with Nick, Gustav and Ferdinand are more seamlessly integrated into the main plot, and several storylines from past episodes are resolved. The ‘50s are over and, as Roger teaches the boys, tea will be spilled in the ‘60s.
