"Runaway children beware; Richard's dreams spell danger for the lost young girls coming to the City Down the Shore, for Richard makes his dreams come true!" These are the adventures of the police officers of a busy New Jersey resort town during the decade of the seventies. There are sad stories and happy stories; some stories will tug at your heart, and some stories will scare you: there are stories that will make you laugh and some that will bring tears to your eyes, but the stories about the archfiend Richard and his murderous endeavors will glue you to the book. You will see through the eyes of this cruel warped minded sociopath the torturous, inhuman injuries that a prowling serial killer can inflict on poor unsuspecting young girls. Runaway children are some of the most vulnerable people in our society and provide this evil fiend with an almost unlimited crop of potential victims. Richard dreams terrible things and makes these dreams come true at the cost of the lives of these naive innocent young girls.
