Publisher Description

The “worthy and frightening sequel” (Stephen King) to the acclaimed and “unforgettable” (Harlan Coben) New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling novel Chasing the Boogeyman.

Back in the summer of 1988, a young Richard Chizmar was catapulted into the center of a living nightmare as the serial killer Joshua Gallagher—dubbed by the media as “The Boogeyman”—stalked his tranquil Maryland town. A lot has changed in the intervening years.

These days, Chizmar enjoys a certain level of celebrity and notoriety himself, being the only person that an incarcerated Josh Gallagher will speak to on or off the record. Chizmar likes to believe that he’s doing the world a public service by visiting Gallagher in prison, as there are plenty of other nameless victims out there who Gallagher might finally admit to killing and bring closure to grieving loved ones, and a dark rhythm and routine begin to take hold. But Chizmar eventually finds there’s a price to be paid for dancing with the devil, when a masked figure with all the hallmarks of Gallagher’s reign of terror from thirty years ago now leaves a horrifying calling card in front of Chizmar’s home, and it’s clear there’s a new player on the board in the ongoing game that the Boogeyman controls…

A riveting, haunting sequel to the New York Times bestselling thriller Chasing the Boogeyman, this is a tale of obsession and the adulation of evil, exploring modern society’s true crime infatuation with unflinching honesty, sparing no one from the glare of the spotlight. Will those involved walk away from the story of a lifetime in order to keep their loved ones safe? Or will they once again be drawn into a killer’s web? As the story draws to its shattering conclusion, only one person holds all the answers—and he just may be the most terrifying monster of them all.

Great Sequel

Couldn’t wait for this to come out and it did not disappoint. It was like hanging out with old friends (and some new ones too). It was terrifying at times but having grown up in the northeast, the nostalgia coming-to-terms with the present was downright comforting. Please Mr Chizmar, continue to write in this unique style and keep the Edgewood universe alive.

Better than the first?!

Rarely is a sequel as good as the original, but for the first 80% of this book, I was quite impressed that this lived up to the perfection that was Chasing The Boogeyman. The last 20%, however, beats the original in my eye. Packing the emotion, suspense, fear, and love in this book makes this the Empire Strikes Back of this series, or the rare occasion where the sequel beats the original.
This author deserves the same level of love and adoration in the public eye as his friend, Stephen King.
