Publisher's Summary

What if the figure that haunted your nightmares as a child, the myth of the man in the woods, was real?

He'll slice your flesh.

Your bones he'll keep.

Twenty years ago, four teenagers went exploring in the local woods, trying to find to the supposed home of the Bone Keeper. Only three returned.

Now, a woman is found wandering the streets of Liverpool, horrifically injured, claiming to have fled the Bone Keeper. Investigating officer DC Louise Henderson must convince sceptical colleagues that this urban myth might be flesh and blood. But when a body is unearthed in the woodland the woman has fled from, the case takes on a much darker tone.

The disappeared have been found. And their killer is watching every move the police make.

Critic Reviews

"The Bone Keeper will corrupt your days and shatter your nights." (Val McDermid)

"A dark and brilliant thriller from a writer who just gets better and better. The Bone Keeper is tense, chilling and HUGELY scary." (Mark Billingham)
"Luca Veste proves you don't need to go to the Bayou or the Everglades to find something terrifying in the deep, dark woods. Sometimes evil is lurking just around the corner. An entertainingly nasty piece of work." (Christopher Brookmyre)

The Bone Keeper

I enjoyed this thriller. There are twists and turns as we discover the story of The Bone Killer and the characters who surround it. The narrator did well giving each character a voice with a Liverpudlian accent. There were times of sadness, fear and relief within the book. The ending felt a little rushed or short but overall I felt this was a good story.

dreadful

Reader did their best with a very poor plot. A real struggle to finish this dreadfully unbelievable story. By the time I was halfway through, I really wouldnt have cared if the main characters had all been bumped off.

Fantastically dark

Just my kinda book, a modern folk tale that twists between paranormal horror and detective serial killer. Liverpudlian X-Files!

fairly good

I got this book based on the narrator Jonathan Keeble reading it. I was disappointed on the lack of graphic murders based on its name I thought it would have more descriptions. I did enjoy the story the characters were likeable if some what annoying. but i would read more by this author

So disappointed

Started off quite well but became so improbable as to make the story nonsensical. Jonathan Keebles narration was, as always excellent, but even so it was a struggle to get to the end

So disappointing

I have enjoyed all of Luca Veste's other books so I’m sad to say that this one completely failed to hold my interest. I kept going until the end but it felt like a real chore
