Publisher's Summary

A Texas serial killer called BoneMan is on the loose, choosing young girls as his prey, His signature: myriad broken bones that torture and kill - but never puncture.

Military intelligence officer Ryan Evans is married to his work; so much so that his wife and daughter have written him out of their lives. Sent to Fallujah and captured by insurgents, he is asked to kill children not unlike his own. The method: a meticulous, excruciating death by broken bones that his captor has forced him to learn.

Returning home after the ordeal, a new crisis awaits. A serial killer is on the loose, and his method of killing is the same. Ryan becomes a prime suspect, which isn't even the worst of his problems: Ryan's daughter is BoneMan's latest desire.

In a story that is devaststing in its skill and suspense, Ted Dekker brings to bear his ability to terrify and compel in BoneMan's Daughters.

    "Excellent thriller."

    This is a chilling and gruesome book. To think that there are people out there like the Boneman is disturbing. But sometimes I like to read chilling, gruesome and disturbing books. This was a good one.

    "This is one sick twisted character"

    Very well written. This is the first time I have listened to Ted Dekker. I really enjoyed listening, several time I was unable to get out of the car when I had arrived at my destination. I really enjoyed the conversation with the author at the end of the book, great touch.

    "Give this a chance!"

    Out of the 8 reviews so far, 5 are negative, so I felt compelled to say a positive word. This was very thrilling and kept me glued to my ipod.
    I also want to give a word of advice to Audible listeners. Don't reject a book here based on a few reviews here. Look at reviews on other sites like Amazon.com first. I almost made the mistake of rejecting this book based on those negative reviews here. It would of been my loss.

    "Not for the faint hearted"

    Excellent listen. Narrator does a great job of making the bad guy sound totally creepy.The book was pushing the limites of what I like to listen/read. I don't like to read about physical violence and if that type of stuff gets to you this may not be a good choice.
    That aside, it definetly kept my attention. It gives you a good look at evil and how evil like to justify its actions. If you read the bible you will be able to identify with the obvious and underling thems of the book.

    "The worst book I have ever downloaded!"

    I have downloaded about 50 listens from Audible, and this is by far the worst. I always read other people's reviews (unless I'm really hooked on the author), but in this case there weren't any yet and I thought I'd take a chance. NEVER AGAIN!
    This book was painful to listen to, going over the same things time and time again, and again,and again,and...It became totally unrealistic as it went on and on, with the characters remaining coherent after the worst supposed abuse and days and days of no food or water. And it was based on the rediculous premise of a father who has ignored and been mostly separated from his wife and daughter for 18 years, all of the sudden seeing the light, and then realizing he can't live without either of them.
    We were on a long drive when listening, but after many painful hours, we kept fast forwarding, hoping we might find something redeeming somewhere in this book. We're still looking...

    "Creepy in a good way"

    My wife likes spooky, scary and serial killers, I like thrillers and suspense. We listened while on a trip and we both enjoyed it very much. Serial killer with a twist. We are looking at other Dekker books.

    "A total waste of time and a credit"

    The book seemed endless and was endlessly disappointing. Verbose, melodramatic, implausible, ridiculously repetitive, and just plain annoying. I only managed to finish it because I am truly a stubborn woman. Avoid this one.

    Story
    "Another keeper from Mr Dekker"
    What made the experience of listening to BoneMan's Daughters the most enjoyable?

    The story was easy to follow and the narration was spot on.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of BoneMan's Daughters?

    The climatic conclusion of the story. It was somewhat predictable but done very well.


    Which character – as performed by Robert Petkoff – was your favorite?

    All


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Scary to the bone.


    Any additional comments?

    Although this isn't my favorite of all Mr. Dekker's books I think it was a great read and listening experience. I wish some of the other characters had been developed and completed more and at times the non-intended creepy character relationships were as creepy as the intended ones (I'm trying no to cause a spoiler moment). But, I did enjoy the story over all and would make a great movie.
