Becoming the Boogeyman by Richard Chizmar

Title: Becoming the Boogeyman
Series: The Boogeyman #2
Author: Richard Chizmar
Publisher: Gallery Books
Release Date: October 10, 2023

A riveting, haunting sequel to the New York Times bestselling thriller Chasing the Boogeyman—a tale of obsession and the adulation of evil, exploring modern society’s true-crime obsession 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.

I enjoyed Chasing the Boogeyman and I couldn't wait to see what was new in the world of Richard Chizmar!

Chizmar delivers a story with enough suspense and mystery to entertain. However, in difference to Chasing the Boogeyman, this story dragged in some areas.  

I do like his winning formula of inserting himself and his life into the world where a serial killer is out to get him. Chizmar gave us enough questions, including if there was a new killer and if he was someone he already knew. Was he just following orders from someone from prison? or if a copycat was lurking on his property just to create non-stop fear.

The ending gives a perfect place for book 3 which I would read without hesitation.

Cliffhanger: Yes

3.5/5 Fangs
