A non-fiction book featuring Greg Lewis

 Mark Bingaman has finally finished the book  that we have collaborated on. It is a chilling true detective story,  based on an actual case that we worked on. Here is the back cover  explanation of the book. 



Roaming  unabated, a serial pedophile spent every waking moment pacifying his  inner demons. Combating illicit sexual cravings, like self-medicating an  incurable disease, required daily heavy doses of hardcore pornography. A  chilling account of an eight year-old child kidnapped and brutally  murdered. Rising up from a rural California town and striking back, a  worldwide chase ensued for a sociopath gone mad. No respecter of human  rights—a child’s life. Leaving the United States and spanning half the  globe, the hunt would never end until coming face-to-face with every  parent’s worst nightmare.

A harrowing true-crime story grippingly  told by a team of detectives left standing. The story of Maria Piceno  is a testament of courage and faith— under fire. This special child  wouldn’t go quietly into the night. Out of life’s hardest lessons, comes  unforgettable sweet tender moments. Anyone that has loved a child—this  is a must read, no one can afford to miss. You’ll never be same:
