‘The Bric-a-Brac Man’ is the sixth of Russell H. Greenan's novels, first published in 1976. Steeped in the shady world of antique dealing, this is another sharply plotted crime tale "as full of gimmicks as a Rube Goldberg kitchen" according to the Boston Globe, including a loanshark interested only in buying souls.
Russell H. Greenan was born in Manhattan in 1925 and reared in The Bronx. He attended New York public schools, graduating from Morris High in 1942. A year later, aged 17, he enlisted in the US Navy. After the war, the GI Bill enabled him to study world literature at Long Island University. In 1966 he left the US to spend a year in Nice with his wife and three children where he wrote his first novel IT HAPPENED IN BOSTON?. This novel has become a modern classic, translated into 5 languages and is included in Random House's Modern Library. Mr. Greenan's subsequent novels have been published in the US and France, and one of them, THE SECRET LIFE OF ALGERNON PENDLETON was made into a film in 1997. Though well into his eighties, Mr. Greenan continues to work. DREAD OF NIGHT is his latest work.
