Would you kill an innocent man to save your daughter?
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.
But the FBI sees it differently. New evidence points to the suspicion that Ryan is BoneMan. Now the hunter is the hunted, and in the end, only one father will stand.
One by one the bones break beneath his expert hands. He’s done this many times before. They don’t call him the BoneMan for nothing. It’s not that he wants to kill them necessarily, they just don’t meet up with the standards he’s set for the perfect daughter. And that’s all he wants. Someone to love him like he loves himself.
But in his pursuit for perfection, the BoneMan faces a formidable foe. Ryan Evans, father of the BoneMan’s latest victim, is not just going to let his daughter go. Having been subjected to seeing the same sort of torture as a POW in the War on Terror, Ryan can only imagine his daughter placed in that situation. He hasn’t been a perfect father by any means; he’d barely been a part of his daughter’s life. But that experience had brought him closer, made him want to reconcile with his daughter. And now that he was back, this monster had taken her from him, trying to make her his own daughter.
With the FBI thinking that Ryan himself is the BoneMan, he lashes out and goes vigilante. The battle between the Ryan and the BoneMan becomes personal. A war of two fathers in which one must fall. Boneman’s Daughter’ exhibits a depth and a breadth that is both heart-pounding and heart-stopping. It is page-turning and riveting. Be prepared for an intricately woven story that examines the depth of one father’s love. Clear your schedule because you’ll not want to put this book down, calm yourself, keep the lights on, and enjoy…for behold, the BoneMan cometh.
BoneMan’s Daughters is the story of a Father who is willing to go to extreme lengths to save His estranged Daughter from the clutches of a killer who wants the Daughter for his own. It’s powerful. It’s deep. It’s meaningful. Yet it manages to be pulse-racing and page-turning. Ted manages to infuse a timeless literary quality without sacrificing the commercial thrilling nature.
