The Bone Keeper by Luca Veste is a deliciously dark tale set in modern day United Kingdom. The Bone Keeper is a legend that has been around as long as anyone can remember. The story of a mysterious entity that lived in the dark woods surrounding pretty much every town all over the UK. Every disappearance is credited to the Bone Keeper. The proverbial boogie man, the legend of the Bone Keeper is spread around in the circles of children everywhere. It is; however, considered to be a myth.

When Caroline Rickard stumbles out of the woods in a delirious state, with mysterious wounds covering her body, she is singing the haunting song of The Bone Keeper, insisting that the legend is real. That the Bone Keeper really exists. The case lands on the desk detectives Henderson and Shipley. Shipley is a die hard Bone Keeper denier, but for Louise Henderson, a complicated past leads her to believe that the legend may not be a complete fabrication. The case of Caroline Rickard becomes much more complicated when another body is found in a similar area to where it is believed Caroline may have been held. The deeper the detectives dig the bigger the case gets as more and more bodies start to stack up. The case is soon thrown under the umbrella of the major crimes unit. Henderson and Shipley stay on the case, feeling committed to see the case they started to the end. The novel is a twisted tale that looks into the darkest parts of human nature. It is a dark and moody tale that keeps the reader in edge to the end. A fun read. ( )

The Bone Keeper – A Brilliant Scouse Noir Thriller

The King of Scouse Noir, Luca Veste, who has become well known in recent years for his Merseyside Police Thrillers that centre around DI Murphy and DS Rossi, is now back with a standalone thriller. Once again using Liverpool and Merseyside as the backdrop to this excellent thriller, not only a thriller but a brilliant thriller built around a serial killer.

Louise Henderson is a detective constable in the Merseyside Police and tends to work alongside Detective Sergeant Paul Slater, but Slater is aware that Louise is not telling him the whole story about herself. She has a reputation for exploding sometimes but that is something many in the force are capable of, especially when dealing with the dregs of society.

Louise and Slater are called out to an incident where a woman who has been badly beaten and sliced up has turned up, running a long a street where she collapsed. Both get to the scene thinking they are dealing with a routine domestic assault that has spiralled further out of control. Little did they know what they had just walked in to, especially when the victim tells them it was the Bone Keeper. Both are sceptical, as they know that the Bone Keeper is nothing more than an urban legend.

Little do they know that as they head into the woods, what they will uncover, as it begins to give up its dark secrets. Louise has a strange feeling about what they are finding, and Slater is sure she is not telling him something that might be vital to the investigation. Both, the live victim and Louise know there is something they must do while at the same time not revealing that important detail to the rest of the world.

As the bodies begin to stack up, they seem to have a prime suspect, but cannot find him but when people are being murdered in their beds that suspect needs to be found. As Louise faces her own private hell and her history the killer becomes clear, but she knows she will always have to keep silent, even if she is afforded a new change to start over.

The Bone Keeper will keep you on edge throughout the course of the book, and as you get deeper you want to know the skeletons that Louise has hidden. Will that skeleton be her downfall or a key to solve the case?

This really is one of the best thrillers that you can read this year, as it is dark, disturbing, sick and twisted. Digging deep in to the twisted psyche of a serial killer on a journey of discovery, with bodies piling up. The Bone Keeper will keep you gripped from beginning to end, highly unpredictable well-constructed thriller. ( )
