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 the prime suspect, which isn’t even the worst of his problems: Ryan’s daughter is BoneMan’s latest desire.

In a story that is devastating in its skill and suspense, Ted Dekker brings to bear his ability to terrify and compel.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Ted Dekker is a true master of thrillers, and this is his best.” 

    Nelson DeMille, New York Times bestselling author of The Gold Coast

  • “[BoneMan’s Daughters] is a tour-de-force of suspense that demands to be read in one sitting.” 

    James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Oracle

  • “Petkoff’s versatile vocal skills deliver a compelling plot that is classic Dekker. In particular, Petkoff’s depiction of the insane workings of the serial killer’s mind is riveting. The substance of this story is raw and the scenes of torture unsettling, but the accounts of violence are suggestive, not graphic.” 

    AudioFile

  • “Full of Dekker’s trademark suspense, this well-written thriller is bound to elicit strong demand from fans. Despite the dark material, it does not contain overly graphic accounts of violence.”

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelley | 2/11/2014

    " Wow. Every single book I read by Ted Dekker blows me away. He is a master of blending religion and spirituality, emotional stories, and spine tingling twisted horror to give us an edge of your seat thriller. The serial killer, "The BoneMan," is the stuff nightmares are made of. Very compelling stuff that makes you think. It amazes me how well he portrays just how far a person, good or evil, will go to to reach what they so desperately want. Loved it loved it loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann Tracy | 2/9/2014

    " Whew!!! Hard to put down. Graphic violence and suspense. I needed a breather after finishing...definitely a dark adventure. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karla | 1/30/2014

    " Boneman's Daughter's did provide a wild ride of action and suspense--it should make a great movie. That being said, the lack of character development warranted another revision before being published. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marie | 1/30/2014

    " Excellent thriller!! It takes place in Austin/Central Texas so it was easy to relate to the setting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paige | 1/17/2014

    " I loved this book. I thought Dekker did an amazing job showing just what a father would do to keep his daughter safe. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tamara Littrell | 1/13/2014

    " Just plain creepy and not believable at all. For someone (Ryan Evans) who is supposed to be a Naval Intelligence Officer, he sure made a lot of dumb moves, one of the first ones being sitting on a rock and letting BoneMan sneak up on him, when he (Ryan) was the one who had baited him to the Crows Nest on the first place. If all all US NIO's are this dumb, Lord help us all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jemimah | 1/10/2014

    " I'm divided when it comes to rating this book. The concept of the story is great (*spoiler warning* another Biblical allegory), but there are many violent, gory parts. I'll stick to a three-star rating for the meantime. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 1/5/2014

    " Seemed a bit disconnected at first and I couldn't see where it was going but that came together eventually and was not a bad read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mark | 1/5/2014

    " Dekker's writing is fine and I'll give him another try some time. To his credit, I tried to give up this book half way through it, but it became hard to stop (I should have removed it from the bathroom). But the theology became too obvious and ending and didn't work at all with the ending. The main character seemed too much like a psycho at the beginning to care much about, and in the end that problem only increased. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scarlet Black | 1/2/2014

    " I love Ted Dekker's thrillers! This one, while good was not as good as others I've read. There is alot of repitition. The plot was not as tight either. Sometimes, I had to re-read sections. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 12/10/2013

    " A thriller of a book. One of the better Ted Dekkers books, although I am still waiting anxiously for his new book of the cirlce series (Green) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 12/3/2013

    " very good so far, great thriller. Loved the main charactors. Had a great little piece by author explaining where the idea for the book came from. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan W. Waflart | 8/17/2013

    " I love thrillers, but this one really creeped me out. Very intense violence and pretty gruesome too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeanie Pryor | 4/5/2013

    " I loved it. It grabbed my interest at the very start and kept me wanting to read more and more. It was a suspenseful,chilling, and had a surprise ending. I totally recommend this book if you like thriller, suspense type books. Did I mention that I loved it!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jumana | 4/2/2013

    " This book wasreally good!! It shows us that to be careful of crazy people and never take anything for advantage!! My favorite part is the end of the book when he was about to abandon his daughter but then he ran back for her!!it was great "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 1/8/2013

    " Loved this book! First of Ted Dekker's that I've read and will certainly be reading more of his. After a slump for a while of not being able to find anything good, this book really kept my attention from beginning to end. Highly recommend! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhonda | 8/3/2012

    " This is the second Dekker book I've read and I do like him. I was disappointed from the start because I just knew what was going to happen--so wrong!!! Interesting mystery, kind of creepy and really different. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jackie Reed | 7/26/2012

    " What a man will do for his daughter - excellant read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah | 5/27/2012

    " It was a fairly engaging novel that entertained throughout. It lacked some depth in areas, but in others it delved deep emotionally and mentally in making me think. It feels fairly short, but it has a good ending for the length. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kaye | 3/27/2012

    " I wasn't crazy about this book. The killer himself was kind of interesting, but the ending was so gushy it was almost creepy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth Bedee | 1/31/2012

    " This was a good book, but it wasn't as bone-chilling (pardon the pun) as I thought it would be. I wanted for some story lines to be further developed. If this were made into a movie, it would make for an excellent male leading role, as Ryan Evans is very conflicted. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maureen | 12/15/2011

    " It was an interesting idea but the writing didn't capture me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina | 9/11/2011

    " Another great Dekker book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Aaron | 6/21/2011

    " not sure I like what's creeping into his books... it's easy to let little things like a word here or there get in and before you know it, you have a worldly attitude... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shelby | 5/22/2011

    " This book kept me on the edge of my seat. The ending however had me scratching my head??!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kayley | 5/14/2011

    " I only had one problem with this book: there was a curse word!!! Why? I think the point would still have gotten across without that three letter word in there. Other than that, that book was really, really, really good. And I am not exagerrating! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christy | 5/11/2011

    " This isn't the type of book that I'd pick on my own, but while in San Diego my mom lent it to me and I must have read it in two days! It was a suspenseful page-turner that kept me totally interested. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 5/8/2011

    " I REALLY LOVED THIS BOOK I READ IT TWICE THIS YEAR! "

    action packed ...right up until the very last page. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 4/29/2011

    " It was a pretty good read but I would have liked more background on the antagonist in the story. The short author's essay at the end was an eye-opener but PLEASE do not read it until after you finish the book as it is a fascinating insight into Ted Dekker's inspiration for the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 4/12/2011

    " the ending was a little abrupt, and left a few questions about how it things would work out for some characters, but other than that, it was a great read. This was my first Dekker book. I will be reading more. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gina | 4/8/2011

    " sucked. Skip this one. Trite. Predictable. Stupid villain. I felt like it copies a dozen other books... badly. "

    " One of Ted's greatest thrillers! "
