about this item

When Shane Dunphy was working as a teacher in a small town, he was approached by the mother of one of his pupils. Her youngest son, Gregory, had begun leaving the house at night to go deep into the woods that surrounded their home. When asked, Gregory told his mother that he was visiting his friend Thomas and strange footsteps were found under Gregory's bedroom window. But no other family lived close by and, as Shane tries to gain the confidence of the young boy, it becomes clear that there is a presence in the woods.And Shane is also dealing with ghosts of his own. A sexual predator he helped bring to justice some years back is looking for revenge ...The Boy They Tried to Hide is the startling account of how truth is sometimes stranger than fiction and how we are compelled to seek justice and truth - even in death.Then a ghost from Shane's own past surfaces - a criminal he helped send to prison some years earlier who seems intent on making Shane pay for the part he played in his arrest.The Ghost Boy is the incredible true story of how real life is sometimes stranger than fiction and how society can often overlook the most vulnerable among us.
