Boneman's Daughter's

Boneman's Daughters

By Ted Dekker

About the Book:
They call him BoneMan, a serial killer who’s abducted six young women. He’s the perfect father looking for the perfect daughter, and when his victims fail to meet his lofty expectations, he kills them by breaking their bones and leaving them to die.

Intelligence officer Ryan Evans, on the other hand, has lost all hope of ever being the perfect father. His daughter and wife have written him out of their lives.

Everything changes when BoneMan takes Ryan’s estranged daughter, Bethany, as his seventh victim. Ryan goes after BoneMan on his own.

But the FBI sees the case differently. New evidence points to Ryan being BoneMan. Now the hunter is the hunted and in the end only one father will stand.

From me: After reading the first couple of chapters of Boneman's Daughters, I really thought the book was shaping up to be like Thr3e (which was awesome, if you haven't read it, read it! It's, IMHO, by far Ted Dekker's best writing!), unfortunately I was wrong. The story was awesome and very well developed and I loved every word right up until the ending. The ending was to cut and dried and I wasn't pleased, at all, with how things turned out. I actually thought it went against what I've seen in most of Ted Dekker's other books. I wish he would have spent a little more time on the ending and made it just as great as the rest of the story.
