Excellent story. Suspenseful. The Christian message often found obvious in Ted Dekker's novels is more subdued in this story as it was in Three, and a couple other books. Definitely a good read with the excellent writing skills I have learned to expect from Ted Dekker. It did not, however, leave me with the awe of God that his other more obvious stories invoke, but a good read none-the-less.

One by one the bones break beneath his expert hands. Hes done this many times before. They dont call him the BoneMan for nothing. Its not that he wants to kill them necessarily, they just dont meet up with the standards hes set for the perfect daughter. And thats all he wants. Someone to love him like he loves himself.

But in his pursuit for perfection, the BoneMan faces a formidable foe. Ryan Evans, father of the BoneMans latest victim, is not just going to let his daughter go. Having been subjected to seeing the same sort of torture as a POW in the War on Terror, Ryan can only imagine his daughter placed in that situation. He hasnt been a perfect father by any means; hed barely been a part of his daughters life. But that experience had brought him closer, made him want to reconcile with his daughter. And now that he was back, this monster had taken her from him, trying to make her his own daughter.
With the FBI thinking that Ryan himself is the BoneMan, he lashes out and goes vigilante. The battle between the Ryan and the BoneMan becomes personal. A war of two fathers in which one must fall.

Bonemans Daughters exhibits a depth and a breadth that is both heart-pounding and heart-stopping. It is page-turning and riveting. Be prepared for an intricately woven story that examines the depth of one fathers love. Prepare for 4.14.09, clear your schedule because youll not want to put this book down, calm yourself, keep the lights on, and enjoyfor behold, the BoneMan cometh.

I am a diehard Dekker fan and this just wasn't my favorite Dekker tale. Out there a bit like House, yet doesn't quite make the mark for me. I thought he was going in the direction of Three for a good part of the book...which made me disappointed. I was relieved that it didnt turn out that way. The book kept me interested, but just because I wanted to see where he was going to take the story. Overall Boneman's Daughers was a disappointment for me. Give me the Circle and Paradise novels any day!

This was my first Ted Dekker book and I was a little disappointed in the amount of christianty in it. Even though it was a page turner and suspenseful. Very good plot and very good writing.

Ted Dekker is the master of crazy suspense. It's hard to imagine how a person can come up with something so twisted and yet something that makes perfect sense all at the same time, as well as coming up with such surprising endings. One of my favorite writers of all time.

When I first began the book I feared it was something I could not connect with... It wasn't long before I just could not put it down. The story lingers with you and keeps you in suspense, frustration and agony at times. I was surprised at the ending and kept replaying in my mind. Would definitely recommend this read!
