Welcome to Saturday everyone. Hope your weekend is going great and you are enjoying the fall weather or curled up on the couch reading a good book. Todays book is rather a chilling book
BOGEYMAN by Steve Jackson

A WildBlue Press original true crime story from the New York Times bestselling author of MONSTER and NO STONE UNTURNED, describing in dramatic detail and with heart-rending poignancy the efforts of tenacious Texas lawmen to solve the cold case murders of three little girls and hold their killer accountable for his horrific crimes.

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 ever parent's worst nightmare. The bogeyman they warned their children about ... the fiend who lurked outside bedroom windows."
 Well let me just say this. The Bogeyman had me reading for hours, even though I had to put it down a few times, not that I didn't like it  quite the contrary this book had me rattled and it made me think . What these poor detectives did to catch this evil evil man.
  This story starts out in the 80s The Bogeyman is terrorizing the small town in Texas stalking elementary school and parks looking for young girls to take, rape and murder. The Texas lawmen that won't give up on these what they called throwaway kids. These detectives work tireless to find out who this man is and to stop him. What I loved is that these detectives did not give up and wanted to get closer of these cold files .
  This is a very intense book, first off I still have trouble believing that there are animals . not people but animals out there that would ever harm a child. My heart was breaking when I was reading. I mean no child is a throw away child. As I was reading I wanted to go and hunt the bastard down myself. The things he did were just horrible. The author takes us to the pits of hell while he was writing those stories,but starts to bring us back with the detectives that are on the case. These men are hard working and want to help give those families closure. The one detective that really popped out to me was Detective Gary Sweet. He worked tirelessly as the cases took a toll on everyone and their families. Theses detectives go beyond the call of duty to find closure for these beautiful girls.
 This is an emotional well written book. You will go through hell and back. Have tissues ready as you read. I will guarantee that for a fact you will ugly cry. This book did give me a book hangover
