Boris lives in the Keeper of Secrets universe. Susan encounters him in the first book of the series and in Secrets Kept, we get to know a bit more about him. He is always there when Susan meets with "Backdoor Barry", silently doing his job. Sometimes lipreading the mute, old TV set; sometimes tending to his bartender duties, he is a quiet observer of everything that goes on at the Rising Sun Hotel.
When I finished the second book in this series, I couldn’t help wondering what was happening in Boris’ life when we were not around. Has he been a part of Barry’s adventures? Was he around when that chair acquired its famous bullet hole? Does he have a romantic interest?
As you can see, these questions needed to be answered.
Boris is more than just a bit part player in Susan Smith’s adventurous life. Boris has a life of his own.
