Boneman’s Daughters
Center Street (April 14, 2009)
Ted Dekker


Ted is the son of missionaries John and Helen Dekker, whose incredible story of life among headhunters in Indonesia has been told in several books. Surrounded by the vivid colors of the jungle and a myriad of cultures, each steeped in their own interpretation of life and faith, Dekker received a first-class education on human nature and behavior. This, he believes, is the foundation of his writing.

After graduating from a multi-cultural high school, he took up permanent residence in the United States to study Religion and Philosophy. After earning his Bachelor’s Degree, Dekker entered the corporate world in management for a large healthcare company in California. Dekker was quickly recognized as a talent in the field of marketing and was soon promoted to Director of Marketing. This experience gave him a background which enabled him to eventually form his own company and steadily climb the corporate ladder.

Since 1997, Dekker has written full-time. He states that each time he writes, he finds his understanding of life and love just a little clearer and his expression of that understanding a little more vivid. Dekker’s body of work encompassing seven mysteries, three thrillers and ten fantasies includes Heaven’s Wager, When Heaven Weeps, Thunder of Heaven, Blessed Child, A Man Called Blessed, Blink, Thr3e, The Circle Trilogy (Black, Red, White), Obsessed, Renegade, and Chaos.


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.

Read the story behind Boneman’s Daughters on Ted’s blog.


As usual, Dekker has penned another book that will mess with your mind. I even started reading it, put it down and read a different book because I just wasn’t sure I wanted to go there. Eventually I picked it back up because I have long been a Dekker fan and remembered that even when he deals with tough topics, he manages to get his point across with restraint.

As in many of his other novels, nothing is quite as it seems. The bad guy is purely evil but at times the reader has to wonder if the obvious good guy is really the bad guy. Sometimes he’s not so sure himself.

Boneman’s Daughters is a story that will make you cringe, it will make you look over your shoulder, and make you lock all the doors and windows. Ultimately, it will make you think – about the relationships in your life and how far you would go to protect those you love.

Not for the faint-hearted but if you enjoy a good thriller, be sure to pick up a copy of Boneman’s Daughters.
