Overview
When his estranged daughter's life is taken by a serial killer, who killed six other young women by breaking their bones and leaving them to die, intelligence officer Ryans Evans inadvertently becomes a suspect in the killings of all seven girls.

Publishers Description
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.

More About ted dekker

Ted Dekker Ted Dekker (born October 24, 1962) is a New York Times best-selling author of more than twenty novels. He is best known for stories which could be broadly described as suspense thrillers with major twists and unforgettable characters, though he has also made a name for himself among fantasy fans.

Dekker was born to missionaries who lived among the headhunter tribes of Indonesia. Because his parents’ work often included extended periods of time away from their children, Dekker describes his early life in a culture to which he was a stranger as both fascinating and lonely. It is this unique upbringing that forced him to rely on his own imagination to create a world in which he belonged.

After leaving Indonesia, Dekker graduated from a multi-cultural high school and took up permanent residence in the United States to study Philosophy and Religion. Upon earning his Bachelor’s Degree, he entered the corporate world and proceeded to climb the proverbial ladder. But his personal drive left him restless and, after many successful years, he traded corporate life for wide range of entrepreneurial pursuits that included buying and selling businesses, healthcare services, and marketing. In the early nineties while visiting a friend who had just written a book, Dekker decided to pursue a long held desire to be a novelist. Over the course of two years he wrote two full length novels before starting from scratch and rewriting both. Now fully enamored by the the process and the stories, he realized that storytelling was in his blood and a new obsession to explore truth through story gripped him anew.

He sold his business, moved his family to the mountains of Western Colorado and began writing full-time on his third novel. Two years and three novels later his first novel was published. Dekker’s novels have sold over 5 million copies worldwide. Two of his novels, Thr3e and House, have been made into movies with more in production. Dekker resides in Austin, Texas with his wife Lee Ann and two of their daughters.

Spanish Bio: Ted Dekker, autor de mas de veinticinco novelas, es un autor de mayor venta del "New York Times". Es reconocido por novelas que combinan historias llenas de adrenalina con increibles confrontaciones entre el bien y el mal. Vive en Texas con su esposa y sus hijos.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
This is a great book!!  Dec 12, 2009
(I am Joshua's wife. My name is Sarah, and this is my review of Dekker's Boneman's Daughters)

This is one of the most interesting books I have read in a long time. Yes, of course the story is dark because it is about a man who kidnaps young women in hopes that he will find the perfect daughter. When they do not meet his expectations, he breaks their bones without tearing flesh.

Then one day, he goes after the wrong man's daughter.

Some reviews have said that this book has no redeeming qualities, but I beg to differ. Dekker has always done a good job of writing about good and evil. This book is no exception, and I think that the story has God woven into the pages in a very big way.

Yes, this book does have some language in it that some may be offended by (i.e. piss, hell, skank, whore). But, it did not offend me. So many times, I think Christians box themselves in without remembering that we live in a fallen world with people around us every day who are not Christians and use language that we may not.

Moreover, my feelings about this is that none of the characters are labeled as Christian, which tells us that yes, they will use language that we may not approve of. I personally feel like just because a Christian author may use cussing in his/her novels, it is not to say that they are saying cussing is right. Think about this for a moment. Jesus called the Pharisees Sons of Snakes. We have a similar term in the English language. That means that either Jesus sinned, which we know he didn't, or maybe, just maybe it means that sin is not always what we think it is.

I really enjoyed this book and believe it had a great message. I cannot say what that is, because then I would give away the ending. But, if I could tell you one thing about it, it would be that love has no bounds.

Dekker did a wonderful job on Boneman's Daughters!
 
BoneMans Daughters  Dec 4, 2009
I have been a long-time fan of Ted Dekker. BoneMans Daughters was a big let down. The plot was scattered, the characters and relationships poorly developed and analogies were misleading. Comparisons between an earthly father and heavenly father were weak at best. Ryan was a weak, indecisive crybaby that encouraged murder for his teenage daughter. Profanity??? Where did that come from Ted???
 
Heart-stopping Thriller  Nov 22, 2009
Seven young girls in Texas have lost their lives to a diabolic serial killer. Dubbed The Boneman by the media, he kidnaps girls and kills them by breaking their bones without breaking their skin. He seems to be able to steal girls and evade the police at will. The Boneman has taken a two-year break, but he's ready to start again.

Ryan Evans is a Navy intelligence officer. He is back in Texas from a tour in Iraq, where he is captured by the enemy and psychologically tortured. He is made to watch as a Muslim fanatic kills Iraqi children one by one by breaking their bones. Kalid tells Ryan that he can stop the torture anytime. All Ryan has to do is give his own wife and daughter's address so that they can be killed in place of the children. Ryan manages to withstand the torture and escape, only to have a subsequent breakdown.

The Navy sends him home to heal. Ryan wants to use the time to reestablish ties with his wife and even more, with his daughter Brittany. He has been absent for much of her life on overseas assignments. He is shocked when he returns to find that his wife is now in love with another man, and that Brittany has turned against him, believing that he has never put her needs first. They want no part of him in their lives.

Bad as this is, there is worse to come. Ryan wakes one day to find that the Boneman has taken a new victim, and that victim is Brittany. Desparate to find her before she is killed, he finds that the police have misinterpreted the evidence and believe that Ryan himself is the murderer. He is now fighting the clock to try and save Brittany on his own, while evading both Boneman and the police. Boneman seems to be ahead of Ryan at every turn, and holds the key by holding Brittany's life in his hands. Ryan is at his mercy, and must do whatever the Boneman wants to try to save his daughter.

The suspense in this book is mind-altering. The thought of a child being taken is a parent's worst nightmare, and if that kidnapping was done by a serial killer, it is beyond belief. Dekker has created a nightmare character in Boneman that will remain in the minds of readers for a very, very long time. This book is recommended for thriller and horror readers.
 
Silence Nay Sayers THIS BOOK IS AWESOME!  Oct 23, 2009
Alright so for the second time this week I find myself reviewing this book because after reading some of them I find it really odd at some of the comments made by others and I just finished it 2 days ago! Anyway I have read more than my fair share of reviews calling this book the sickest thing they have read. Simply put this is not true. It is very dark and goes into a good bit of detail making the average reader cringe at some of the pictures he paints in your head, but to me that is a sign of a great book. It isnt sitting back for 50 pages of doing nothing but intriduce characters or their situations. I have read probly 5 other books 10 times more disturbing and I was not a reader at all until about a year ago. There are many, many more topics that could be far more disgusting and it is apparent a few other reviewers havent turned on the tv in a while because I have heard a dozen true stories that were far more grotesque. Now with that out of the way I will move on to the knocks on Dekker himself, some are going as far as questioning his christianity for inclusion of what I believe it one curse word if I remember correctly. WOW. People obviously cant take anything for what it is. As a good writer Dekker realizes that when pushed to the edge even some of the most ardent christians will utter a curse word and the character does not show anty sure sign of even being a true christian though he does pray it is later on. With my ranting on that over I will simply say that this only being my second book read by the author he is practically my Hero and I intend on reading the circle series next and I have already started on Black. So far BoneMan is my favorite although as mentioned before I have only read one other (Kiss) which I also reccomend. If you are someone who has lived in a cave all their life and or doesnt like modern literature stick to the classics or give Ted a break.
 
the sickest book ever!  Oct 20, 2009
This was a book I read for a book club. It was probably the worst, sickest book I have ever read. I found it interesting that this christian(?) author did not use swear works because he did not want to offend his christian readers. Instead he wrote the most depraved book ever!
