Here's a short synopsis of BOGEYMAN, MURDER IN THE FAMILY, and TARGETED:
BOGEYMAN:For years he stalked elementary schools and playgrounds looking for young girls from low-income neighborhoods to abduct, rape and murder. They were "throwaway kids" to him, hardly missed, soon forgotten. He was every parent's worst nightmare. The bogeyman they warned their children about, who lurked in the shadows outside of bedroom windows.
Murder In The Family: In March, 1987 police in Anchorage, Alaska arrived at a horrific scene of carnage. In a modest downtown apartment, they found Nancy Newman's brutally beaten corpse sprawled across her bed. In other rooms were the bodies of her eight-year-old daughter, Melissa, and her three-year-old, Angie, whose throat was slit from ear to ear. After an intense investigation, the police narrowed the principle suspect down to 23-year-old Kirby Anthoney a troubled drifter who had turned to his uncle, Nancy's husband John, for help and a place to stay. Little did John know that the nephew he took in was a murderous sociopath capable of slaughtering his beloved family.
Targeted: When her missing boyfriend is found murdered, his body encased in cement inside a watering trough and dumped in a cattle field, a local sheriff's deputy is arrested and charged with his murder. But as New York Times bestselling author and investigative journalist M. William Phelps digs in, the truth leads to questions about her guilt.
