Books For The Road - Boneman's Daughters

Looking for suspenseful? Chilling? A book-you-can't-put-down? Here it is. Boneman's Daughters by Ted Dekker is all of that. If you have read Dekker's fantasy books, you will find that this work is different. No fantasy here except what exisits in the psychotic killer's mind who gets a kick out of breaking bones in the young girls he kidnaps while trying to find his perfect daughter.

Ryan Evans, the father of the killer's latest victim fights to save his daughter from the fate of those before her. He has gone through his own hell when a prisoner in the desert in the Middle East as he had to watch a madman there break the bones of innocent children. When he returns home, he fights desperately to prove his attitude as a husband and father has changed.

The twists and turns keep you reading. Dekker is masterful in that. Be sure to read the acknowledgement at the end that tells you where his inspiration came from for the story. You'll understand why he dedicated it to his daughter.
