In the seriesEdit
- Main article: Dead Beat
Bock runs an occult bookstore largely to provide for his family. Despite checks by the Wardens, he manages to procure some rare, hard to find, banned books. 'The Cage' is a section of his store that holds a majority of these. Some of his store items are not cheap and, according to Harry, cost a large portion of his rent.
During the course of Dead Beat he bans Harry from entering the premise, however due to his personal respect for the man, allows Harry to continue buying books via a telephone call and house visits. His book store is located near the college campus in a somewhat bad part of town.
He appears to know Billy Borden.
