BoneMan's Daughters was honestly a book I could not put down...Probably the best part was that just when I thought I knew exactly what was going to happen, it of course didn't. It usually wasn't anywhere near what I thought...

Synopsis

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 it differently. New evidence points to the suspicion that Ryan is BoneMan. Now the hunter is the hunted, and in the end, only one father will stand.

...BoneMan’s Daughtersit all gets served up so heavily slathered in encoded religious double-speak...feels like some queasily hysterical Sunday morning revivalist melodrama.

The conflict Ted Dekker creates...forces us to step back and take a look at our own lives in a way that we never had, and leaves us exposed with our eyes open to things we had never seen before.

...Dekker still managed to throw in some very good twists to surprise the reader. Thankfully this was not only the case with the ending; it was also the case throughout the whole book. Dekker has another great thriller under his belt.

This well crafted plot is packed with tension and suspense. Dekker gives just the right amount of information to keep us hooked, but never enough to spoil the ride or reveal the final destination.
