'A worthy and frightening sequel to Chizmar's Chasing the Boogeyman. Terrific storytelling' - Stephen King

Back in the summer of 1988, a young Richard Chizmar was catapulted into the centre of a living nightmare as the serial killer Joshua Gallagher - dubbed by the media as 'The Boogeyman' - stalked his tranquil Maryland town.

These days, Chizmar enjoys a certain level of notoriety himself as he is the only person to whom Josh Gallagher will talk, on or off the record. Chizmar likes to visit Gallagher in prison, as there are plenty of other nameless victims out there and Gallagher's confession would bring closure to grieving loved ones.

But when a masked figure leaves a horrifying calling card in the front of his home, Chizmar finds there is a price for dancing with the devil. It's clear that there is a new player controlled by the Boogeyman.

A riveting, haunting sequel to 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Becoming the Boogeyman is a compulsive, utterly immersive twist of fact and fiction. Richard Chizmar masterfully blends reality and imagination to deliver something wholly original and totally gripping from start to finish. I couldn't stop turning the pages, even when I wanted to turn away. Don't miss this edge-of-your-seat chiller that will keep you guessing - and guessing again - Lisa Unger

Richard Chizmar has pulled off one hell of a sequel, delivering the rare thriller that is truly original and unlike anything else you'll read this year. While the tension is high and the chills plentiful, it is the human heart of the book that lingers once the tale is told - Michael Koryta

A worthy and frightening sequel to Chizmar's Chasing the Boogeyman. Terrific storytelling - Stephen King

Chizmar is a master of capturing the horrors beneath the surface of suburbia. King would certainly approve here - this is stunning. - Daily Mail

“Even better than the 1st one!”

Richard Chizmar has excelled himself with his sequel to Chasing the Boogeyman. I belong to his publishing house, Cemetery Dance so they were doing loads of promotions. I bought the English and American copies and am... More

“Better than Stephen King”

It. Is. Time. For years now I’ve loved Chizmar’s work, been terrified of it, lost nights of sleep and looked over my shoulder in the hours of darkness. Any author who makes you doubt fiction from reality is a huge hit... More
