This gripping political thriller tells the story of Lee Atwater, the blues-playing rogue whose rambunctious rise from the South to Chairman of the GOP positioned him as kingmaker and political rock star. Characterized as "the most evil man in America" by one of his enemies, he helped elect 3 Republican Presidents with his vision of politics as war. As mentor to both Karl Rove and George W. Bush, many credit him with America's tremendous shift to the right.
But when illness strikes, this legendary cynic embarks on a controversial deathbed search for redemption.
“Atwater is dead, but his spirit roars back to life in Boogie Man...a compelling portrait of one of the great con men of modern American politics...bracing...makes you ponder the allure of power.”—LA Times
