'The Bone Keeper will corrupt your days and shatter your nights' Val McDermid
`A dark and brilliant thriller from a writer who just gets better and better. The Bone Keeper is tense, chilling and HUGELY scary' Mark Billingham
`Luca Veste proves you don't need to go to the Bayou or the Everglades to find something terrifying in the deep, dark woods. Sometimes evil is lurking just around the corner. An entertainingly nasty piece of work' Christopher Brookmyre

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 sceptical 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.
