The Son Goes Down by Victor J. Banis

The Son Goes DownThe Son Goes Down by Victor J. Banis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A fun addition to the Jackie Holmes franchise.
As with most pulp books, they explore an area of gay life and shed light on it for the reader. It's not like you could consult the internet at that time and look for "male whore houses in Istanbul" or "where to cruise for sailors in Europe and Mexico", so these books gave guys a clue what to look for, as well as providing an interesting story.

This volume seemed slimmer than the others and the story raced by. Someone is kidnapping American boys and putting them in a porn/prostitution ring and C.A.M.P. is called to come to the rescue.

A good pace, the right amount of action, and a fun light story.

I think the end is set in Istanbul? I want to go to 1967 Istanbul.
