The Bookseller is the first book in the Hugo Marston series. Hugo is working as the head of security at the US Embassy in Paris when a friend of his, an elderly bookstall owner named Max, is abducted at gunpoint. His position leaves him powerless to do anything about it, but he begins to investigate anyways with the help of a semiretired CIA agent named Tom Green. Their investigation leads to Max’s dark past and a group of rival drug dangs in a turf war.

Pryor also wrote Hollow Man as a standalone novel. The book follows Dominic, an English musician living in Texas (sound familiar?), who is a psychopath trying to hid his condition and live a normal life. Things start to break down when he’s demoted at work, accused of stealing another musician’s work, and meets a beautiful woman who convinces him to steal a van. The plan is wrought with trouble and Max will have to decide who he can trust and whether or not to let his true nature come out.
