Hound: a novel by Vincent McCaffrey

Death was, after all, the way Henry Sullivan made his living.Henry is a book hound, content to evade life by escaping into the books he sells to other dealers. But the murder of an ex-lover pulls him out of his familiar circles and leads him both to examine his past and to investigate the murky depths of literary Boston.Hound, the first novel featuring Henry Sullivan, is the debut work of a longtime Boston bookseller; it lays bare both the city and the literary world in a classic slow-burning style.Vincent McCaffrey has owned and operated the Avenue Victor Hugo Bookshop for more than thirty years, first in Boston, and now online from Abingdon, Massachusetts. He has been paid by others to do lawn work, shovel snow, paint houses, and to be an office-boy, warehouse grunt, dishwasher, waiter, and hotel night clerk. He has since chosen at various times to be a writer, editor, publisher, and bookseller. He can still remember the first time he sold books for money in 1963-and what most of those books were. Hound is his first novel.
