Ryan Evans is an intelligence officer serving in Iraq when his convoy comes under attack. The torture Ryan endures changes his life forever. Determined to make right all that has gone wrong in his life, he heads stateside.
Meanwhile, one of the most horrific serial killers ever is set free. He's called BoneMan because he breaks the bones of his victims without breaking their skin. But did the police have the right man in custody? Who is the BoneMan? And can they stop him before he kills again?
This book marks Ted Dekker's first book for the general market. He's been enormously successful in the Christian market, and his books are usually quite fast paced page turners. I usually enjoy them quite a lot. I sort of enjoyed BoneMan's Daughters as well, but it's a pretty gruesome read. I can't say that it's my favorite of his books. I do enjoy suspense books centered around serial killers, but I got really queasy reading this one! It's a very dark read, but it does end with hope.
It also raises some interesting questions and is not without hope. Christian readers should be aware that their is a wee tiny bit of language they might find offensive. (I did not).
