Creepy, enticing. It didn't have as direct a takeaway as some of Dekker's other novels, but it was a thrilling read.

Ryan follows a clue trail that the boneman left him, hoping mistruths, knowing full well the unthinkable could happen. BAHH to his own life, he was fully devoted to rescuing his daughter whatever the cost. This enthralling and intriguing novel is of a broken family coming together and learning to love, only because tragedy brings them together. Big hit for me. Im only 12 burt i think people much older could read this book with intrest.
