Boneman's Daughters by Ted Dekker

Hey Readers,

If you like "horror" or anything close to it, you will be well pleased with this book. In some ways some of the contrasts in this book caused my mind to compared this book with the movie "Silence of the Lambs". Why, well because Boneman's Daughters shows one of the most drastic, plain, clearly drawn, tortured evil that has come against truly misled innocence that has been manipulated, and the search for real love.

Unlike Obsessed, which was also very good, this book is on a whole different level to my way of thinking and reading. It really shows that Mr. Dekker "took things up a notch" and laid bare more of the horrible real word truths for all to read. I am not at all sorry that I read it. While in some ways it is one of the scariest things I have ever read, it is also a story of love, second chances and redemption. The myriad of different views points of the cast of characters was not lost on me at all. We each have things we must do in our lives, but how far could you or I really go pushed to the limit? I hope you never have to find out because it is not normally a pleasant journey.

A recommended read if you aren't too squeamish, don't have nightmares easily, and can look death in the face and work to keep thinking.

Ted Dekker


Ted is the son of missionaries John and Helen Dekker, whose incredible story of life among headhunters in Indonesia has been told in several books. Surrounded by the vivid colors of the jungle and a myriad of cultures, each steeped in their own interpretation of life and faith, Dekker received a first-class education on human nature and behavior. This, he believes, is the foundation of his writing.

After graduating from a multi-cultural high school, he took up permanent residence in the United States to study Religion and Philosophy. After earning his Bachelor's Degree, Dekker entered the corporate world in management for a large healthcare company in California. Dekker was quickly recognized as a talent in the field of marketing and was soon promoted to Director of Marketing. This experience gave him a background which enabled him to eventually form his own company and steadily climb the corporate ladder.

Since 1997, Dekker has written full-time. He states that each time he writes, he finds his understanding of life and love just a little clearer and his expression of that understanding a little more vivid. Dekker's body of work encompassing seven mysteries, three thrillers and ten fantasies includes Heaven's Wager, When Heaven Weeps, Thunder of Heaven, Blessed Child, A Man Called Blessed, Blink, Thr3e, The Circle Trilogy (Black, Red, White), Obsessed, Renegade, and Chaos.


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.
