What if the figure that haunted your nightmares as child, the myth of the man in the woods, was real?

He'll slice your flesh.
Your bones he'll keep.

Twenty years ago, four teenagers went exploring in the local woods, trying to find to the supposed home of The Bone Keeper. Only three returned.

Now, a woman is found wandering the streets of Liverpool, horrifically injured, claiming to have fled the Bone Keeper. Investigating officer DC Louise Henderson must convince skeptical colleagues that this urban myth might be flesh and blood. But when a body is unearthed in the woodland the woman has fled from, the case takes on a much darker tone. The disappeared have been found. And their killer is watching every move the police make.

The brilliant new police procedural from Luca Veste, featuring series characters Murphy and Rossi - a guaranteed page-turner.

my Thoughts
It really is a page- turner , because as soon as i read the first page which has the poem i was hooked because of how keep it was and is ,
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.
The story is told in chapters title Before and Now, while the before chapters can be a little confusion at times , the more you read the more understanding their become and eventually link up to the rest of the story , but to understand how and why you have to read the story. As for the characters the only one i had trouble with was Louise, there was times i just had trouble believing in her character .and you have no idea if its a copy cat or if the Bone Keeper is real . So if you like stories like this and not just any type of story but the ones that holds an element of surprise and actually gives you the heebie-jeebies and uneasiness with its creepy children’s rhyme and an urban myth that plays on people’s fears, think the bogey man crossed with the worse kind of killer ( like Jack the Ripper) and your half way there.Plus add a touch of the slasher elements to it and you wouldn't want to go any where by yourself. With that said I would like to think Netgalley for letting me read and review it in a change my honest opinion.
