The Bone Keeper's coming The Bone Keeper's real He doesn't stop He doesn't feel He'll snatch you up And make you weep He'll slice your flesh Your bones he'll keep. This is the stuff of every child's nightmares. But what happens when the nightmare continues as you become an adult? Is it a myth .. or is it real? The opening chapter describes how 20 years ago, four young teenagers wandered into the woods, daring themselves to face The Bone Keeper. Only 3 came out on the other side and have never been seen again. DS Laura Rossi believes in the myth. She knows there have been many deaths. She knows that The Bone Keeper wants her to come to him. She has a secret ... one that she cannot share. And then the bodies are found. This is a creepy crime thriller that will send shivers down your spine .. especially if you had a boogie-man when you were a child. Once started, I found it hard to put it down for any length of time. There's this sense of fearful apprehension underneath the palpable suspense. The story premise is excellent with a stunning ending. Many thanks to the author / SOURCEBOOKS Landmark / Netgalley for the digital copy of this crime thriller.
