Based on the true story by David Holthouse as first told in the Denver Westword newspaper, STALKING THE BOGEYMAN was famously featured on the popular weekly public radio broadcast ''This American Life'' in 2011 and has prompted an ongoing array of national media attention since then. In the spring of 2003, David Holthouse was a successful, award-winning journalist. No one knew that David had two incredibly dark secrets -- first, that 25 years ago he was the victim of a violent rape, and now, that he was planning the ultimate revenge on the man responsible. A humanizing story of transformation, healing and forgiveness of the highest order, STALKING THE BOGEYMAN follows a man's powerful hunt for revenge as he comes to grips with the killer inside him.
