Product description

About the Author

James Osiris Baldwin has been a bouncer, worked as a magazine staff editor for the Australian Journal of Dementia Care, and is a freelance writer, web-designer, ghostwriter, and journalist. He currently works full-time as an advocate for people living with dementia. A global nomad who moves from country to country and cafe to cafe, he divides the year between travelling the world and living in Seattle, WA, with his beautiful girlfriend and a hopelessly codependent, prissy parrot. Occasionally, he sleeps. In no particular order, he loves cats, the Occult, war history, dinosaurs, space and Carl Sagan. --This text refers to the paperback edition.


"The characters and the world building Baldwin created are simply fantastic. There is an amazing amount of detail/research that he put into not only the occult and magic, but into making sure the structure of the mafia was legit, right down to the pesky Russian love of a million diminutives for each name and using them in the correct circumstances (seriously, as someone who has Russian characters....yeah.). On top of that he also works through the societal stigmas and prejudices that are apparent not only in our current world, but especially in the 1980s and especially in an organization like the mafia. If you haven't bought it or added it to your Goodreads list, you really should do it now. This book is an amazingly crafted, gritty look at an Underworld where magic is used and power can be fleeting. When you think you know who is pulling the strings, another twist is thrown in. And when it all comes to a head, grab some tissues."--The Misplaced Selchie Reviews "The criminal aspect is prominent in both books, as is the magic, but it was while reading Blood Hound that I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming. Things get weird towards the end - really, really weird - and thanks to the writing style, they also seemed real. It's like that feeling you get when you are partially awake, but still dreaming. If you are into stories that temporarily make you question your reality, this book is for you."--Dilyana Kyoseva Reviews --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
