THE STORY: 

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.
  

MY REVIEW: 

 I didn’t find “Boneman’s Daughters” to be thrilling at all.  I didn’t feel any suspense, I didn’t care whether any of the characters lived or died, nothing.  This sort of sucked, because I had totally geared myself up for a thriller before reading this. 

A guy made psycho by his mother who then commits serial killings out of anger for the love he never had, and moreover who is obsessed with the beauty of his own body…..This particular rendition of the “Mom-Made-Me-A-Serial-Killer And Isn’t My Body Beautiful?” story has as its protagonist “The Bone Man,” or Satan, as he doesn’t mind being addressed. And to complete the Christian imagery, we also have various Fathers against whom the Bone Man has a beef; crucifixion imagery; and a priest-cum-psychologist to interpret the whole thing…….. 

And the book plays an interesting role in delivering a political message about Iraq that you almost miss, being caught up in the chase. 

Borrow it from somewhere, and judge yourself..I am not too fond of it..
