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.
Bestseller Dekker (Chosen) introduces a serial killer with an unusual MO he breaks all the bones in his female victims' bodies while leaving the skin perfectly intact. Two years after Austin, Tex., authorities catch the person they think is the BoneMan, they begin to realize they've got the wrong guy. The real murderer, Alvin Finch, who hasn't killed anyone during those two years, is getting restless and decides to take up his old trade. Meanwhile, Cmdr. Ryan Evans, an intelligence officer in Iraq, is captured by insurgents who torture him; they replicate the BoneMan's crimes using young children and make him watch. Ryan escapes and returns to Texas, where his teenage daughter is abducted. Accused of being the BoneMan, he's captured by police, escapes and eventually, as all readers know he must, joins in battle against Finch. Those with an insatiable appetite for thrillers about creepy, sadistic killers of young women should be satisfied.
Sick bad guy
Disturbing. Lots of surprises.
Never gets old
I’ve read this book at least 10 times, it will forever be one of my favorites. With twists at every turn, you’ll turn the last page and want more.
First time I have read a book by this author. I'm fixing to read more by Ted Dekker. I used to read James Patterson but his books are not the same and much to expensive. This book was great can't wait to start another book by this author!
