Boneman’s Daughters by Ted Dekker

This book is something else. I never like to share too much when it comes to books especially when the author does such a good job keeping the reader guessing. Oftentimes when I read books, I have everything figured out well before the end. With this book there were so many possibilities to consider and I missed one major possibility. There are some graphic details, but mainly left to the readers imagination. You would hear worse listening to the evening news, unfortunately. If you like suspense and mystery this may be a book you will want to read.
Front Jacket says:

Would you kill an innocent man to save your daughter?

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.

For the story behind the story check out Ted's website.
