From the book: "For years he'd stalked elementary schools and playground looking for young girls from low-income neighborhoods to abduct, rape and murder. He thought of them as "throwaway kids"--hardly missed, and soon forgotten, except by those who loved them. He was every parent's worst nightmare. The bogeyman they warned their children about ... the fiend who lurked outside bedroom windows."

Great writing and a compelling story line. You should read it!" - John Ferak, author of BLOODY LIES. "I highly recommend Bogeyman byAuthor Steve Jackson to my true crime friends. It's actually quite touching and written with a great deal of respect." - R.J. Parker, author (with JJ Slate) of SOCIAL MEDIA MONSTERS. "After having read his riveting MONSTER non-stop, I didn't see how Steve Jackson could top Steve Jackson with BOGEYMAN. I can't say he has, as they are both equally riveting. In BOGEYMAN, he doesn't so much focus on the monster he calls "the darkness," but on the fine detectives who made it their life mission to put an end to his reign of terror. I highly recommend both fine works!" - Diana Montane, bestselling co-author of MISSING AND PRESUMED DEAD.
