    "Late Fees" finds Noah and his small group of friends getting ready for Thanksgiving and the arrival of Noah's mother Angie for the holiday. Angie meets Joanne on the plane trip --"We found out we had all these things in common." "Like that we were both on our way to L.A. to visit our gay sons!" -- and when Joanne's son doesn't come to the airport to pick her up, Noah gives Joanne a ride only to find the son dead in his apartment, apparently a suicide.

Angie meets Joanne on the plane trip --"We found out we had all these things in common." "Like that we were both on our way to L.A. to visit our gay sons!" -- and when Joanne's son doesn't come to the airport to pick her up, Noah gives Joanne a ride only to find the son dead in his apartment, apparently a suicide. But Noah, Matt, Louis and Leon aren't so sure and do some investigating of their own, with Angie proving to be a valuable addition to the group, picking locks with a bobby pin and engaging in a little bit of breaking and entering. As always, the murder mystery is secondary to the thoroughly engaging cast of characters and I loved Matt and Louis' elaborate Thanksgiving dinner (plus the recipes at the end of the book.) Detective Javier O'Shea makes an appearance here, and while there's nary a kiss, O'Shea reluctantly tells Noah he can't stop thinking about him, and you just know there is more to come in the incredibly slow-burning saga of Noah and Javier. O'Shea now has a boyfriend Tim, but not to worry, as Noah's mother tells him: "Oh, that's not going to last." "Mom, what do you know about it?" "I wasn't born yesterday. See, in every couple there's a pretty one. Tim thinks he's the pretty one, but he's not. As soon as he figures that out, it's over."Noah continues to come to terms with being HIV positive (in the days when AZT was the only drug in town) but he's working toward being in a better frame of mine:I did sometimes wonder what my life would have been like if I'd never met Jeffer, never fallen in love with him, never trusted -- but I couldn't ever get a clear picture. The only thing I knew for sure was that it would be different and I wouldn't be where I was right now. And now was not too bad. I liked now. 4.5 stars and a Recommended Read for "Late Fees" and I awaiting the next book in this series! I received an ARC from the author, in exchange for an honest review.

    4.5 stars There's a wry, raw honesty that runs through this book. I couldn't help but see it as a screenplay in the hands of a director like Nicole Holofcener- everyday realism with an affectionate sense of the ridiculous in Noah's quirky friends and the visit of Noah's delightful mom lending a bittersweet feel. This series is shaping up to be a slow burning gem. I'm in.

    Pretty good! Not my favorite of the series—I think something about the storyline with the moms just didn't do it for me entirely. And, man, sometimes his friends just annoy the hell out of me. :) But overall, very enjoyable, per ushe!! (PS This is the slowest slow burn romance of all time.)

Angie is Noah Valentine’s widowed sixty-something mother, and the entire plot of this book includes her, on a long-weekend visit to her son in L.A. Together, because of a stranger Angie met in an airport bar in Chicago, Noah and his mom are dragged into yet another murder that Noah desperately tries to deny is a murder. Noah is (you should pardon the expression) the straight man in this darkish comedy. He deadpans his way through his stable-but-fragile life, avoiding difficult conversations and unpleasant truths. Noah, still in his late twenties, is HIV positive, infected by his late ex-lover, who cheated on him and lied. It is the early 1990s, and Noah is on AZT, which might just keep him alive. It takes a writer as good as Marshall Thornton to pull off this slight of hand. His dark and powerful Boystown series puts us in the beginnings of the AIDS epidemic, where there is little hope and lots of anger. Nick Nowak is a tough guy, a cop forced to deal with his own truth in the face of a plague. Noah Valentine, however, is a sweetie. A gentle, slightly feckless young man, who runs away to Hollywood and falls in love – at the wrong time in history. Unlike Nick, Noah knows there is hope out there, but that only makes his anxiety the more poignant. Death and AIDS are both characters in this book, more than in the previous two. In spite of that, it is funnier than the previous two volumes, filled with wry asides that made me laugh out loud (or at least snort with amusement). Noah’s friends and neighbors, Louis and Marc, are both a comic duo and a sincere homage to those gay couples who survived the 1980s. All the characters who gather in the patio of Noah’s apartment building represent the lower-level denizens of the Industry – the worker-bees who make Hollywood function without reaping the big-scale benefits of fame or fortune. They also represent a kind of makeshift family who care about Noah and look out for him (in that somewhat selfish Hollywood way, as long as Noah’s needs don’t interfere with their personal agendas). These folks have made Noah’s life – good. “And now was not too bad. I liked now.” It is, in the end, Angie Valentine’s presence in Noah’s world during this current mystery that seems to cast a warm, benevolent light on Noah’s “now.” Forced to drive endlessly around Los Angeles together, they talk. Noah begins to understand that the family he ran away from was probably far better than he’d realized. His mother is innocent, wise, and filled with a quiet love for her endangered son. She is also pretty amusing. All of this makes an incremental difference as the narrative unrolls. The very last line in the book is: “Um, my name is Noah.” It made me cry, and when you read this you’ll understand why.

    4,5 stars About a year ago now I picked up the first book in this series. For the most part I wasn't sold on it and was going to leave the rest of the series and was satisfied with just reading that one. Then the ending happened and I was hooked, needed to know more. Now?

For the most part I wasn't sold on it and was going to leave the rest of the series and was satisfied with just reading that one. Then the ending happened and I was hooked, needed to know more. Now? I'm totally addicted and in love with this series and keep hoping for more books. It's almost Thanksgiving and Noah's mother, Angie, is flying in to spend the holidays in Los Angeles. Only he's late picking her up from the airport, and during that time she made a friend who's also waiting for her son. Noah offers to drive Joanne to her son's apartment on his way home. But when they arrive, there's no son in sight and they soon finds out he's died during the night in an apparent suicide. Only Noah and his gang of friends aren't so sure, so they start investigating. Noah is more than reluctant to get involved with another murder investigation. Especially since his mother is determined to partake in it - but that makes it all the more fun for the reader. The series has this strange combination of gritty, but also the cosy mystery feel to it. The action is (very) low key and the pacing is not this intense can't breathe and nonstop action kind of thing. On the contrary, it feels real, not only because it's life, but also because it really fits with the 90's where that stress of doing and being everywhere at once isn't as pronounced as it is today. Nothing is instant - the coffee or flow of information. There's still no romance near this series, maybe the fantasy or wishful thinking of one, but I honestly don't mind that. This series is good as it is, and I do see something happening down the line, but there's no need to rush it. Noah isn't there yet, he's still got a lot to work through and this book sees him start that journey. And one I I'm so looking forward to be part of.

    I am really enjoying this series. Set around Thanksgiving 1992, Noah's mom is coming out to spend the holiday with him. As things progress he is pulled into a murder, which of course at the beginning nobody thinks is a murder. The main secondary characters are all there. An intriguing mystery which had me guessing right up until the big reveal. Can't wait for the next in the series.

    A Joyfully Jay review. 5 stars I will begin by saying that I really enjoy the Pinx Video Mystery series by Marshall Thornton. You should know that this has to be the most slow-burning romance side plot in history. These novels are about Noah’s life and his discovery he became HIV+ from a man he trusted and loved. His partner has passed away at the beginning of this series, but in this third book, Late Fees, we still feel the impact of the legacy Noah unknowingly received.

You and Dad were good Christians.” She looked at me a moment and then said, “Not that good, dear.” (Can I get an amen? 🙏) I plan to start reading book 4 asap!

    I think it would be awesome if someone made a television series about Noah & his mom solving crimes. I would totally watch that show. Also, I know this is a mystery series, not a romance but I really hope it turns into one down the line.

    This book goes from serious to funny and everywhere in between and I love it. I love this series. If I ever felt sorry for anyone, it would be Noah. Lol. That man is a trouble magnet with a capital T and his friends don't help in keeping him out of it either. I'm convinced he needs to give up his video store and just be a PI. Or something. It's bad enough Noah gets into trouble on his own, now his own mom is in on the 'fun’.

I'm convinced he needs to give up his video store and just be a PI. Or something. It's bad enough Noah gets into trouble on his own, now his own mom is in on the 'fun’. Picking her up late at the airport started this whole tale and as usual, Noah ends up with his life possibly at risk. His mom meets someone in the airport bar who is also waiting for her gay son. When the son doesn't show, Noah...well Noah’s mom, volunteers them to take her to her son's apartment. There's no answer by phone or the door, so they decide to try in the morning after hearing he was at a party late. The police call the next morning to inform them the son is dead. But the mom is convinced her son wouldn't kill himself,  in spite what the cops are saying. And it leads to a mystery where the cops are not happy with Noah, as usual, the suspects have secrets a mile long, and finding out Noah's mom can perform a B&E. Noah finds out some things about his mom in this one that gives him a few shocks. Such as the B&E, for example. And she's just as bad about wanting to investigate as his friends are, when all he wants to do is stay home. It always ends up where he's almost shot, stabbed or something and he'd like to remain alive a bit longer. Plus, the cops are really getting pissed at him. Except for Javi, but that's a whole other story. His mom being in this story just cracked me up so many times. She is a pistol. It had its hard times too. Discussing his HIV status was hard. No good mom wants to lose their child. That's one thing in this story and series I've loved. Although nowadays, with things such as PreP, HIV and AIDS seem to be having better results. Although there's no cure, they seem to be getting a better handle on it. But back then, it was still new and raw. So many had lost their lives. I love that the author uses characters that have the disease though. And shows them in a different light. It's never downplayed and I love it. Good, bad and ugly. I'm still convinced Noah need to just be a PI. Maybe his friends do too, as much as they keep sticking him in the middle of it lol. But his natural curiosity and need to get at the truth make for an interesting story. Full of mystery, suspense, humor and more. These stories I can never put down. True entertainment. I'm waiting to see if he gets in more trouble soon and what it is next. http://lovebytesreviews.com

    Noah Valentine is one of my favourite characters, and I loved spending some time with him in LA during 1992. It was very nostalgic going back to that time period (I was in my last year in school during 1992 with all the teenage angst going with it), and I enjoy every minute reading the book.

These stories and series (Boystown and Pinx Video) are incredible and in my opinion, must reads.  What I have never described one of those stories are is guffaw inducing or heartwarming or endearing. Nope, never thought those adjectives would find themselves into a Marshall Thornton review, especially one of his murder mystery novels.  Guess what?  All three apply here." for all our reviews, check out http://scatteredthoughtsandroguewords...

I hope the author won't abandon the story.

    I have read this book on kindle unlimited, as I have many of the author's other books I have liked all of them, and very much appreciate the superior quality of the writing and the editing. The Pinx Video series contains a lot of humor and very well crafted mystery plots. The protagonist and many of his friends are gay, but the author does not go into detailed sex scenes, which I generally skip over when found in gay novels since they do not teach me anything that I do not already know.

    A sad tale of murder set in the gay world of 1990s Los Angeles. Noah is reluctantly dragged into another case, and brings along his friends, his mother, and a new friend of his mother's. I chuckled or laughed out loud at some of the dialogue. Other parts were moving. Mysteries and personal developments kept me hooked till the end. I read a beta copy provided by the author.

    A phenomenal addition to the pinx video mystery series. Marshall Thornton is such a master story teller that this comes to life in my mind with complete authenticity. Late Fees sees Noah welcome his mother to LA as an unlikely member of his courtyard crime solving gang and its just humour, history and plot, plot *sly detective romantic sub plot* plot. 100% happy.

    Love these funny, understated mysteries. This rag tag bunch of meddlers are hilarious and supportive, and the addition of Noah's mum was inspired. Just wish we'd see a little more sweetness with hot cop. Sigh. Maybe next one?

    Another wonderful book in the series. Noah is getting more at peace with himself and his life. The best interactions in the novel are with his mom, who proves to be a warm and resourceful fellow sleuth. Excellent.
