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.

1 . Not So Good
Posted April 10, 2010 by MikeA , London ONThere are two things about this book, nay three - utterly implausible, completely forgettable and if it's made into a movie it would have to be a comedy.
2 . Just OK
Posted April 06, 2010 by Dangel , OklahomaNot a lot to say about this book. Read it 2 weeks ago and STILL had to read the synopsis to remind me what it was about.. Very predictible. And at other times you are thinking, "whatever, that'd never happen."
3 . Enjoyed it
Posted July 22, 2009 by Alan , RenoI love Ted Dekker's work. I have read the Showdown, Saint and SInner books and was looking forward to a thriller. I really had a good time. A little unbelievable...a little farfetched...sure...but fun! Like a roller coaster ride to the end.....
4 . Worth reading only if you can borrow it instead of buying it.
Posted June 20, 2009 by Arielle , HoustonThis book DOES seem like 2 stories, and while side stories can enhance the main one, when both seem to revolve around the same unheard of, unbelievably weird fixation, the bloom is off the rose for the rest of the book for me.
Maybe it would be a better movie than book, since Hollywood seems better adapted to stretches of the imagination. Check it out from the library or look for it at a flea market $1 table, but save your cash and don't buy it. It was unbelievable, disappointing, and almost painfully predictable right to the end..
5 . enthralling page turner
Posted April 29, 2009 by Kathy , New YorkBoneMans Daughter is one of those books that you could sit down and not get up until the book is finished. Initially, it is a little confusing because it seems like two entirely different stories unfolding, but Dekker does an excellent job of tying everything together. This is the first book I've read written by Ted Dekker and I look forward to the opportunity to read more.
6 . Let's be fair now...
Posted April 25, 2009 by John Doe , New YorkYes, many of the characters are larger than life, but so is the whole story. Boneman's Daughters is edge of your seat entertainment that comes with some powerful undertones. Definitely worth the time. Let's have more Dekker in the eBook Library.
7 . Disappointing
Posted April 15, 2009 by Anja Morales , San AntonioWhile this storyline seems to be promising at first is spindles downwards pretty fast.
The characters are nonbelievable whatsoever, which makes this book so disappointing. The only somewhat believable character is the counselor. Everybody else's personalities are just plain unrealistic and at points made me wanna scream in frustration. "Seriously, no one would react like this!!"
The story itself is actually a good one and so much could've been done with it, yet the writer even failed to keep the story straight. I am not one that write reviews often ( as you might be able to tell by my emotional laden review..lol) nor am i what you call a high maintenance reader, but this book just doesn't deliver.
