Acclaim For Familiar Evil
Rannah Gray’s book is fascinating, well written, and meticulously researched. But most important, it helps spread the message that there is a secret, worldwide epidemic of child abuse…nurtured in the darkness of denial, shame, and perversion. And protecting our children against “Stranger Danger” is not enough.

Familiar Evil has done a remarkable job exposing how cunning, manipulative, predatory sadists mobilize to avoid detection and capture. This is a not-so-gentle reminder that we must protect those with obvious vulnerabilities whose innocence has been stolen and sacrificed.

While many were captivated with the charisma and showmanship of Scott Rogers, Rannah Gray was skeptical about his past. Tragically, her worst fears were confirmed.

Extremely compelling reading about a seemingly outstanding person, a community leader who harbored a very dark secret. This book is a cautionary tale for parents who entrust their children to other adults, proving once again that you cannot judge a book by its cover.

Familiar Evil is a compelling read for all who care about children. It highlights the need to expand criminal background checks beyond our borders, covering all communities where prospective adoptive and foster parents live. It brings home the power of one in uncovering the evil amongst us.
