Silence of the Lambs meets Candyman in this chilling serial killer story.
Twenty years ago, four teenagers entered the woods, hoping to find to the supposed home of the Bone Keeper. Only three returned. Now, a woman is found wandering the streets, horrifically injured, claiming to have fled the Bone Keeper. Investigating officer DC Louise Henderson must convince skeptical colleagues that this evil urban myth might be flesh and blood. But when a body is unearthed, the case takes on a much darker tone…
Review: I’m always on the lookout for a good thriller and I enjoyed this novel.
Everyone knows the nursery rhyme of the Bone Keeper, everyone is afraid of him. He lives in the woods, he kills people and no one has ever found him. But then a woman is found wounded and she is convinced that she has been a victim of the Bone Keeper. Louise Henderson is on the case, but she is also hiding many secrets that may be about to be revealed.
I had a good time with the novel. I was intrigued by the whole Bone Keeper thing and was curious to find out the truth behind it all. I was eager to find out Louise’s secrets, but also the victim’s.
This was an engaging thriller, and I’m curious to read more of the author’s books now.
